It can be tough keeping on top of all the action in Denver's dynamic restaurant scene. So we're here to help.

Every week, we track bar and restaurant openings closings; then compile a list at the end of every month. At the end of the year, we roll out our list of every opening and closing for the past year. You can see our 2017 Restaurant Roll Call here.

Have you spotted any new restaurant or a place that recently closed that belongs on our list? Share the information in a comment or send an email to [email protected].
