A little over a year after it left LoDo -- and after a very long week in which its liquor license got caught in a state snafu -- the Squeaky Bean finally opened in its new, much larger home last week.
Says Mick: Looking forward to checking them out at the new location. I rode my bike up to their old place last year and had just one app and a cocktail, which was still one of my most memorable dining experiences in 2 years of living here. They do it right.
Some industry folks have carped about our coverage of the Squeaky Bean -- but has there been a bigger restaurant opening in 2012? Share your thoughts below. And watch for our Restaurant roll call for June, a compendium of openings and closing over the past month, which will be posted here this morning.
