Later this morning we'll post our Restaurant Roll Call for December on Cafe Society -- a compendium of all the openings and closings on the Denver dining scene over the last thirty days. One of the more notable closings was Tossa, a fast-casual Italian concept created by the folks by Smashburger, which has been such a smash. But Tossa? Not so much. See also: - Tossa, a concept cooked up by Smashburger, closes its first (and only) location - Five restaurants that both opened and closed in 2012...and a bonus revival - Restaurant roll call for November

Says Steveville:

There are about three or four hundred pizza joints in the Denver area that need to be CLOSED.

What are the restaurants that you were sorry to see go in 2012? Which ones would you be happy to say so long to in 2013? Post your thoughts below.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
