Ice cream and pizza and turnovers, oh my! Lots of tasty spots opened in metro Denver this past week, and three of them are on Larimer Street. RiNo gained Redeemer Pizza, where we fell hard for the classic pepperoni slices, as well as cocktail bar Partners in Crime, which is attached to Foolproof Contemporary Art, and Turnover Darling, a ’60s-inspired spot where classic turnovers get a retro twist with fillings like mac and cheese and chicken pot pie (it also serves coffee beverages).

Near Union Station, brunch favorite Onefold opened its second location; now there are two places where you can enjoy its standout dishes, such as fried rice and congee.

Adjacent to its South Downing location in the former home of Maddie's, Denver Beer Co. got in the ice cream game with Yum Yums, where flavors like Sticky Fingers (Graham Cracker Porter and s’mores) and Obi Wan Cannoli are on the menu.

In Arvada, the team behind Old South Gaylord's Perdida introduced Lady Nomada, a Baja-inspired eatery with small plates, tiki cocktails and margaritas, live music and more.

Despite a challenging week, the self-proclaimed "weird" Edgewater cocktail bar The Electric Cure decided to stick with its announced July 30 debut date, with a "hard-soft" opening and a scaled-down menu; it promises to ramp up to its full offerings soon.

Here's the complete list of bar and restaurant opening this week:
