Capitol Hill -- specifically, Capitol Hill between Sixth and Seventh avenues -- and the Bluebird District. Each area of town has its own flavor and character, but if you had to choose one over the other, which would you pick, and why?

Vote below and sound off in the comments!

First up is Capitol Hill between Sixth and Seventh avenues:

Benny's and Govnr's Park are the longtime anchors of Seventh Avenue, but over the past decade they've been joined by a host of sleek, stylish neighbors, including the revamped Racines, Lala's and three cuisine-hopping restaurants of star chef Frank Bonanno: Mizuna, Bones and Luca d'Italia. A block away, the parallel strip of Sixth Avenue has a parallel stretch of equally enticing eateries, from Table 6, Fruition and Barolo Grill to more casual spots, including Lime XS and Pho on 6th.

And now to Colfax, with the Bluebird District:

Colfax Avenue may be the longest main street in the country, but the few blocks that constitute the Bluebird District comprise quite an eye-opening culinary trip on their own. From the new home of the old Annie's Cafe to the Nuevo Mexican of Mezcal to the hipster hangout Atomic Cowboy (with its spinoff pizza and biscuit joints) to Tommy's Thai to the beloved Pete's Kitchen to dive bars, Greek bakeries, sandwich spots and Ethiopian joints, this is street food at its best.

Who you got? Vote below and let us know why in the comments section; feel free to campaign for or against either 'hood.


Voting ends at 11:59 p.m., Sunday, March 18. Vote in more Street 16 match-ups.

Huh?

In what world is Pete's Kitchen part of the Bluebird district? Very odd. From the choices here, I guess it would be Uptown. And Barolo belongs geographically and demographically in Cherry Creek.

Does seem like no contest: "Come to one of these amazing restaurants on 6th and 7th or go and enjoy some bar pizza by the Bluebird".

This round isn't even a competition now that you say that Fruition, Barolo Grill and Table 6 are all somehow in "Cap Hill."

However, I believe the technical Cap Hill east border is @ Corona, so maybe Table 6 counts, but Fruition and Barolo should not be considered Cap Hill.
