The building at 3759 Lipan Street that's already been home to Sunnyside Burger Bar, TAG Burger Bar and Thunderbird Imperial Lounge since Longo's Subway Tavern closed six years ago now has a new tenant. James Zheng, owner of Pepper Asian Bistro at 2831 East Colfax Avenue, has brought his pan-Asian concept to the Highland neighborhood as Pepper Asian Bistro II. Zheng, who's operated the original Pepper for four years, will offer a menu of mostly Chinese dishes, along with a few Thai and Japanese options, at the new location. Thanks to an extensive renovation by building owner Larimer Associates before Sunnyside Burger Bar opened in 2014, the space includes a spacious patio and full bar.

Beer continues to hit big in 2018, with Cerveceria Colorado and Long Table Brewhouse opening this week. Earlier this month, Grateful Gnome finally opened its doors in the Berkeley neighborhood; Primitive Beer is now pouring in Longmont.

And there are more breweries, not to mention restaurants that serve beer, to come in the months ahead.
