Nostalgia is a powerful seasoning that flavors our restaurant experiences, and a return trip to an old favorite can be a more satisfying experience than sampling bold creations at a trendy new eatery.

Here are ten recent stories about longtime Denver bars and eateries we love, some still going strong and some sadly no longer with us.
