This week, chef Dana Rodriguez rolled out Super Mega Bien inside the Ramble Hotel. Along with a variety of full-sized Latin American dishes, small plates are served from carts that wind their way around the tables, dim-sum style. Super Mega Bien joins Work & Class, Rodriguez's other eatery, at 25th and Larimers streets in RiNo. In the Berkeley neighborhood, Wendell's took over the former home of DJ's Berkeley Cafe, serving breakfast and lunch in a newly renovated space. And in Governor's Park, a new fast-casual joint called Daikon is now making banh mi sandwiches. Daikon will celebrate its grand opening today, Saturday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Here's our complete list of restaurant and bar openings (we recorded no closings) for the week of May 14 through May 20, 2018, plus links to related stories.

While there were no closings to report this week, a favorite on Old South Pearl will soon call it quits. The Village Cork, which has served the Platt Park neighborhood for more than sixteen years, will close on June 30.
Every week, we post our list of all the restaurant openings and closings around town. At the end of the year, we offer a comprehensive roster; here's the one from 2017.
