Reader: Look around Cherry Creek -- new independent spots are opening

Big Easy Creole Kitchen, now open in Cherry Creek North.
Cherry Creek North is changing, and the most recent development is the closing of Rodney's, after close to three decades in the neighborhood. That's a sign, Denver Dave suggests, that CCN is "becoming another food court in any mall USA."

But other readers disagree.

Says DD123:

Denver Dave needs to look around CCN a little more closely. There are a bunch of new independent restaurants that have just opened in the neighborhood such as Machete, Marg's, La Merise, the Hawt Dawg (sp?), Tony P.'s, Phat Thai and the new Creole place on Steele. While CCN is not necessarily a destination restaurant neighborhood, the closing of Rodney's signals nothing except that it was time for it to go. It was a horrible space that often smelled and the food was not that great.

Are there other signs of a comeback for Cherry Creek North? What does this neighborhood need? Post your suggestions below.

"Machete, Marg's, La Merise, the Hawt Dawg (sp?), Tony P.'s, Phat Thai"

 

Yeah, and how many of these places will still be there in 18 months? One or two maybe?

Cherry Creek the old Indian burial ground of restaurant neighborhoods.
