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

Street food ruled this week as the Avanti Food & Beverage collective opened its food hall on Monday and restaurant critic Gretchen Kurtz dug her chopsticks into the Southeast Asian bowls and stir-fries at Cho77. Mark Antonation got in on the action, too, with bites of curry and crispy anchovies at Makan Malaysian Cafe.

There's also big news for sports-bar fans, with ViewHouse planning to open a third location in downtown Littleton and the Tavern Uptown announcing that its ast 17th Avenue home will be redeveloped. News was not so good for the regulars at one of the best dive bars around, the Rocky Flats Lounge, which closed earlier this week after a fire — but the owners are hoping to eventually reopen.
