Openings and Closings

Larkburger coming to downtown Denver

Larkburger, which got its start as a little stand-alone burger joint in Edwards in 2006, plans to open an eighth Colorado location -- this one in downtown Denver.

The Larkburger at 1617 California Street is taking over the former home of An's Lemongrass Grill. Larkburger has a liquor license hearing with the city slated for June 25.

The company added a Colorado Springs store at the end of March; it already had spots in Boulder, Fort Collins, Greenwood Village, Arvada and at 340 East Alameda (which, for the record, Larkburger calls West Washington Park).
