The word "oenobeer" (pronounced eeno-beer) doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. Brewer/restaurateur Alex Liberati
coined the word from the Greek prefix "oeno," meaning "wine," to describe the beer-wine hybrid beers he's brewing at Liberati Osteria & Oenobeers, which opened on Monday, October 29
Liberati is as big in scale, with room for more than 200 guests inside, as it is in ambition. Somewhat smaller, but not lacking in ambition, is D Station, near the University of Denver, which is tackling a handful of current Asian food trends on its nutty menu: Chinese hot pot, Hawaiian poke, Cajun seafood boil, skewers and Thai-style rolled ice cream.
Those are just two of the concepts to debut in Denver recently. Here's our complete list of restaurant and bar openings this week, plus links to coverage of other recent and upcoming openings and closings.
