Broadway is one of Denver's most dynamic streets, but for years it hasn't been known for its food and drink scene, outside of a few short blocks that border the Baker neighborhood. But that's beginning to change as new establishments pop up along the street's considerable length. From fried-chicken houses to tequila bars, there has been plenty of action in recent months — and even some old favorites are getting a little love. Here are the ten most recent Broadway bar and restaurant stories we've covered, along with links to the original coverage.
