In what may have been the slowest week on record over the past three or four years, only one establishment opened: a reboot of Fractured Prune Doughnuts, whose short run on Colorado Boulevard ended a year ago; it's now opened in the Denver Tech Center under a new owner. And rumors of the demise of Quijote's were premature; the taqueria on Broadway was closed for a week but got an extension on its liquor license and will stay open into April before calling it quits for good. At that point, though, some of us will have woeful countenances indeed.
Here are the details of the week's action, along with links to our original coverage. And since things are so quiet, we've also included links to new bites from existing restaurants and restaurants coming soon.

"Ten Anticipated Bar and Restaurant Openings This Spring"
The Denver restaurant scene continues to ebb and flow, with ten new restaurant openings in January, balanced out by thirteen closings. We track them every week and every month — here's the January tally — and then compile a list of every opening and closing for the year. If you want to be mind-boggled, just scroll through our list of 2017 action.
In addition to new restaurants, we're always on the lookout for great places to eat and drink, whether it's grabbing grub at every restaurant on Havana Street in Aurora, peeking into Denver's neighborhood bars or exploring Colorado's craft-brewing scene.
