We've had plenty of new and unique offering in the Denver restaurant scene over the past few weeks, from an authentic Sichuan hot-pot house that also serves hand-pulled noodles to a drive-thru brewery and barbecue where you can pick up six-packs and smoked meats without ever leaving your car.

The competition is fierce, and property values are skyrocketing, so we also said goodbye to a few familiar names. Here's a list of the ten most recent restaurant openings and closings, with links to our original coverage.
