Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.
While restaurants across Colorado were able to reopen at full capacity last Sunday, they had already made a quick comeback. Twin Fin Poke had closed in late April after being unable to come to terms with its landlord, and compiled this list three weeks ago. But Twin Fin Poke was back in swimming on May 7th.
“Good news,” reported the owners on the Twin Fin Facebook page. “The property manager contacted us this week and asked us to stay. We have resolved the lease negotiations … Sorry for the confusion again; thank you for your continued support.”
The news isn’t so good for one of the city’s most popular food trucks: Miss B’s Vietnamese stopped rolling on May 18th. Owner Kim Bui shared the sad news on Instagram: “I absolutely wish I could keep pushing, but the demands of running this business makes it nearly impossible for me to enjoy any other aspect of my life to the fullest – and my life just keeps getting bigger being as my career … In this short time I am proud of what I have created. I am proud I am proud that I took risks. I am proud of doing what makes sense to me . “
But a couple of other concepts just got rolling …
