February was a tumultuous month for established Denver restaurants, with name changes, rebrandings, moves and closures both temporary and permanent. We lost longtime favorites in Jus Cookin's Restaurant, DaLat Vietnamese Cuisine and the Trinity Grille downtown. Meanwhile, quaint Cherry Creek cafe So Perfect Eats went on an extended hiatus while its building is redeveloped, and Boone's Tavern got a fast identity switch to become the Rosedale.

Big openings for the month included the long-anticipated Humble Pie Store on East Colfax Avenue, which closed in the Baker neighborhood more than a year ago; Aloy Modern Thai on Larimer Street, which took the place of Trillium; The Crafty Fox Taphouse & Pizzeria, which set up shop in the hinterlands of the Sunnyside neighborhood; and the Tavern Platt Park, which barely sneaked into February thanks to Leap Year.

Here's our list of bar and restaurant openings, closings and changes for February. Let us know if you've spotted any others around town.
