Reader: Can't we come up with something other than pizza and beer bars?
Pie from Pizza Republica, opening today on 14th Street.
Although downtown just lost another pizza spot, Toppings, today Pizza Republica will make its debut on 14th Street, right in front of the Colorado Convention Center -- and this downtown version of a restaurant that got its start in Greenwood Village looks like more than a fair trade.
And more pizza places are coming, including a Denver version of Pizzeria Locale, which will open soon along a very pizza-heavy strip of Broadway.

Says Dave in Baker:
There will soon be five pizza places on Broadway between Sixth and Alameda. Can't we come up with anything aside from pizza and beer bars?
Can there ever be too much pizza? Or too many beer bars? If so, what kind of restaurants/businesses would you like to see added to this part of town?
