In Greenwood Village, Troy Guard's Grange Hall became the southern suburb's first food hall, and it's loaded with popular options, from fried chicken and burgers to sushi and pizza. A few miles away on South Yosemite Street, the Dumpling Factory is serving up a variety of boiled and fried dumplings along with noodles and a selection of appetizers.
Dumplings are also on the menu at Chinatown Bistro, which opened in the former location of Uptown Wok; that spot closed in 2016 following a fire. Over on East 17th Avenue, the longtime home of the Avenue Grill is back in business as Revival Denver Public House.
Parlor Doughnuts, which has become a fast favorite for its layered approach to the pastry, has started serving at its second location in Aurora; it will be open weekends-only as it staffs up.
And it's time to say farewell to Rita's Law, the Five Points bar that poured its last drink on September 24; owner Rita Price hopes to reopen one day in a new, less challenging location. Moving is exactly what the plan is for this week's other closure, Open, which has been slinging its chef-created sandwiches out of American Bonded since March. In October, it will start serving at Goosetown Tavern on Colfax Avenue.
