Reader: It's Highlands to realtors, the North Side to old-timers

For this week's reviews, Laura Shunk visited two old standbys in Denver's hottest new restaurant neighborhood: Carbone's Italian Sausage Deli and Lechuga's. The description of the area prompted this from Steve065:

You called it northwest Denver instead of Highlands! For those of us who grew up here, it was always just the North Side. I don't mind "Highlands" (especially since my property values continue to rise), but I sometimes fear my neighborhood is losing its identity. I understand that change is inevitable when living in the city. But I also sincerely appreciate what the new restaurant scene has brought as well. The only thing "Highlands" about Lechuga's is its location. And I mean that in a good way.

I love North Denver, I can not see my self ever living any where else...It's just unfortunate that now in the hood there are more pets then!!


Yeah the North Side Mafia won't ever be known as the Highlands Mafia.


"Highlands Mafia" sound like a group of Yelp Elite yuppies that meet up after work to play kickball and ride around on scooters.
