We don't just keep a running list on all the closings and openings around town.

After we have a chance to check out all the new places, we get down to the tough job of deciding which ones qualify as the best in their area, perhaps beating out established bars and restaurants. A few newbies definitely bested old favorites in our picks in the 116 Food and Drink categories for this year's Best of Denver.

And if all that goodness isn't enough for you, peruse Eat Here, our annual list of the restaurants we can't live without.

Have you spotted any restaurants or bars opening or closing that aren't on our list? Let us know in the comments or send an email to [email protected].
