Since 2013, Denver coffee fanatics have been revving up their engines with Method Roasters coffee poured at various venues, but now the company has a cafe with its own name on it. Method Collective debuted on June 12 in LoHi in a new development built on the footprint of the old Dickinson Plaza.

And where a number of restaurants — Telegraph, Grey Cactus, Cafe|Bar — have come and gone on East Alameda Avenue, a new venture called Bon Ami Bistro & Creperie, from the owners of La Merise in Cherry Creek, is now dishing up Gallic charm.

Here's our complete list of openings and closings for the week of June 11-17, 2018, plus links to what's coming this summer.

You don't need to rush out the door to be the first in line at every new restaurant opening; there are plenty of old favorites that still need your love. Better yet, do a bang-bang dinner by visiting two spots in one night — an old Denver classic and its new Denver counterpart. Take a look at our five pairings to use as your culinary guide — then get ready for a new set next week.
