Despite record snowfall in Denver for the month of February, contractors still managed to finish up a number of projects, some new restaurants — like Troy Guard's second Bubu in Lowry and the airy School House Kitchen in Arvada — and a few favorites getting updates (Rioja, Fruition) or moving to new spots altogether (India's Restaurant).
The past month was not without the losses, though: The fires went out at Kings BBQ in Wheat Ridge and Indulge French Bistro called it quits after seven years serving top-notch traditional French fare in the Highland neighborhood.
