Openings and Closings

Boulevard Burger & Tap Closes on Colorado Boulevard

Burgers may be big business in many parts of Denver, but one place where they can't seem to find favor is on the 700 block of Colorado Boulevard. Little H Burger moved into a shopping center across the street from Snooze in 2011, but didn't last long, as parent H Burger folded its two burger joints in 2013, taking the baby of the family with them shortly thereafter. Boulevard Burger and Tap opened in the space early last year, keeping much of Little H's menu, including the signature Nutella and toasted marshmallow milkshakes.

But now the grills are cold and the Boulevard is closed, leaving a burger-sized hole in the strip mall that also includes India Express and Papa Rick's Pizza. Neighbors may not be clamoring for yet another burger bar to fill the space, but they'll certainly be curious to find out what's next. Do you have a pick for the kind of food the area needs?
