Pie from Pizza Republica, opening today on 14th Street.
Although downtown just lost another pizza spot, Toppings, today Pizza Republica will make its debut on 14th Street, right in front of the Colorado Convention Center -- and this downtown version of a restaurant that got its start in Greenwood Village looks like more than a fair trade.

And more pizza places are coming, including a Denver version of Pizzeria Locale, which will open soon along a very pizza-heavy strip of Broadway.

Says Dave in Baker:

There will soon be five pizza places on Broadway between Sixth and Alameda. Can't we come up with anything aside from pizza and beer bars?

Can there ever be too much pizza? Or too many beer bars? If so, what kind of restaurants/businesses would you like to see added to this part of town?

So when is Dave in Baker's new not-pizza-or-craft-beer restaurant opening?


I'll use this as an excuse to extend my plea for a decent Persian or Afghan restaurant.


@bondadprevalece The sad thing... a few years back there WAS a good Persian place right on the stretch of South Broadway that Dave in Baker is talking about. It was where the Thai Monkey Club is now. They had several killer kebabs, and a really good kuku sandwich. Apparently it was too unique for the hipsters to support.


@Jon_S oh man, i almost forgot about that place. it was so good! 


@Jon_S That's a shame. I'm relatively new to Denver (two years in Boulder, one in Denver) so I never got a chance to check it out. Seems like food that hipsters can't pretend to be experts on never lasts very long.
