Openings and Closings

Soleil turns out the lights in Cherry Creek

Soleil Mediterranean Grille & Wine Bar, at 2817 East Third Avenue, had a sunny atmosphere -- but its forecast was looking cloudy. So the owners have closed the doors of the Cherry Creek restaurant -- for now. Although Soleil's website is still up, the phone is disconnected.

The owners plan to hold on to the space, though, and when they reopen those doors, it will be to an entirely different restaurant, one that may focus on hamburgers.

What else in this burger boom town that saw five new joints open in February alone?
