Denver lost two corporate eateries this week as Grimaldi's, the New York-based pizzeria, folded in the Denver Pavilions, while the Denver Tech Center outpost of Fort Collins pub chain C.B. & Potts also called it quits. Grimaldi's fans will have to find a new love, as the Pavilions location was the only one in Colorado. Potts, however, still has several locations in the metro area and in Fort Collins.

Glazed & Confuzed pulled its doughnut stand from Broadway Market earlier this month, but the wacky doughnut eatery has a big new shop in the DTC for those with a sweet tooth in the southeast suburbs. Also down south, huge new Japanese eatery Ichiban Buffet is now serving all manner of seafood and sushi near Park Meadows Mall.
