Closed Windows

In my year-end roundup, I shared my shock that Windows Cafe -- the all-veggie, pan-Asian eatery that had opened in the embattled 12200 East Cornell space in Aurora that had already swallowed the likes of Maruti Narayan's, Denver Woodlands and Boudreaux's Bayou Buffet -- was still open. As it turns out, though, Windows closed before 2007 started. (At least I was only off by a couple of weeks -- unlike the Rocky Mountain News, which included Windows in its list of green restaurants on Saturday.)

And another joint has already moved into this jinxed location: La Toscana, an Italian restaurant doing a straightforward menu of pastas, salads and seafood dishes. -- Jason Sheehan
