One of Cheyenne's most historic restaurants will reopen this summer under the name Esther's at the Morris House. The owners of the popular downtown pizzeria Bella Fuoco recently purchased the property at 2114 Warren Avenue where woman's suffrage pioneer Esther Hobart Morris lived in 1890.

The home has been vacant since the Morris House Bistro closed in December 2016 after five years as an upscale eatery. Bella Fuoco began as a food truck in 2013. In 2016, owners John and Maria Kopper bought and restored another historic home across the street from the Morris House at 2115 Warren Avenue. The pizza and wine bistro opened in January 2017, only a month after the Morris House Bistro closed, and has quickly become one of downtown Cheyenne's most popular restaurants.

The Koppers have yet to unveil a grand opening date or menu for Esther's at the Morris House. According to a Facebook post, it will operate from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. They are currently hiring cooks, servers, and kitchen staff.
