Every Restaurant and Bar Opening and Closing This Week

Argentinian street food is popping up in Denver in new ways. Carne, which serves meaty sandwiches like lomitos (with grilled pork), vacios (with flank steak) and choripan (with sausage), just opened in the former home of El Tazumal at 258 Santa Fe Drive. The small cafe also serves empanadas, fries and a few other sandwich options. And La Rumba Choripan is coming to Latin American nightclub La Rumba in the Golden Triangle, offering sausage sandwiches, charcoal-grilled meats, empanadas and arepas. The eatery's food truck of the same name is already out on the streets, often serving comida Argentina outside the Stampede in Aurora.

We don't just cover restaurant openings; we figure out which ones are doing a great job with food, service and atmosphere. There have been plenty to choose from in 2019, but we recently narrowed them down to the ten best new restaurants of the year so far.

Beyond the best restaurants, we're here to help you find the best tiki drinks, the best vegan dishes and the best restaurant rooftop patios, among many other categories.

And, yes, we're also here to let you know when we've lost a restaurant, good or bad. Have you spotted any openings or closings that aren't on our list? Let us know with a comment, or send an email to cafe@westword.com.
