Every Restaurant and Bar Opening and Closing This Week

Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar has been serving Cuban cuisine and cocktails in the Golden Triangle since 2001 and has launched a small group of Cuba Cuba Sandwicherias in the fast-casual sector over the past decade. But this week, founder Kristy Socarras Bigelow introduced a second version of the original eatery, taking aim at Castle Rock. The new outpost is a full-service restaurant with entrees like ropa vieja, lechón asado, picadillo and camarones al coco to accompany the rum bar, sandwiches, tostones and empanadas that regulars have known about for years. See the restaurant's website for hours and details.

The year is nearly half over, and soon we'll be rounding up the best new restaurants that have opened so far in 2019. In the meantime, take a look at our roundup of openings and closings in May.

With so many new restaurants coming to Denver every year, it's easy to lose track of old favorites, longtime classics and newer darlings. That's why we've compiled a list of 100 restaurants we can't live without — it's called Eat Here.
