Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.
Ice cream and pizza and sales, oh my! A lot of yummy eateries opened on Metro Denver last week, and three of them are on Larimer Street. RiNo won Redeemer Pizza, where we indulged in the classic pepperoni slices, as well as the Partners in Crime cocktail bar, which is affiliated to Foolproof Contemporary Art, and Turnover Darling, a place inspired by the 60s where classic sales have a retro Fillings like Mac and Cheese and Chicken Pot Pie (it also serves coffee beverages) get a touch.
Brunch favorite Onefold opened its second location near Union Station; Now there are two places to enjoy his standout dishes like fried rice and congee.
Adjacent to its South Downing location in the former Maddie’s home, Denver Beer Co. got into the ice cream game with Yum Yums, where flavors like Sticky Fingers (graham cracker porter and s’mores) and Obi Wan cannoli are on the menu.
In Arvada, the team behind Old South Gaylords Perdida introduced Lady Nomada, a Baja-inspired eatery with small plates, tiki cocktails and margaritas, live music and more.
