Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The Indian restaurant that opened last fall as Mr. India's BBQ at 3157 West 38th Avenue is now closed. In its place is the second metro-area outpost of Biryani Pot, under new ownership.

This continues the trend of biryani rice specialists coming to the metro area. The Denver Tech Center is already home to Bawarchi Biryani Pointe and Paradise Biryani Point, two competing chains that originated in Hyderabad, India. And the first Biryani Point, another chain with roots in Hyderabad, opened earlier this year at 8101 South Quebec Street in Centennial.

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.
