Battle of the dueling Cebiches is over, with LoHi the winner

The fight was ugly, even raw. But the Cebiche wars are now over, and the Cebiche on West 32nd Avenue is the winner. That was the original Cebiche, a Peruvian-flavored restaurant that closed in 2009, reopened briefly under a new name, closed again, then reopened, again, in 2011 as Cebiche, with building owner Gabriella Watts at the helm.

In the meantime, Sergio Iraola, who'd once managed the restaurant on West 32nd, had plans to open his own spot.

Which he did in the summer of 2011, at 7000 West 38th Avenue in Wheat Ridge, the former home of Minilla's Restaurant. He named this restaurant Cebiche, too, which caused no end of confusion.

Vendors were confused, would-be customers were confused, and there was talk of lawsuits.

But now the competition has officially ended: The Cebiche in Wheat Ridge has closed; no one answers its old number.

That makes the LoHi Cebiche the winner....this round.

I won't go as far as Mr. Stingley's triple "disgusting" post, but I was not impressed. So much could be done with that menu, but our meal was lack-luster and nearly tasteless.

I absolutely love a fresh plate/glass/shell of ceviche, but the offerings here were over-marinated and limp. The entrees were passable -- we ate everything, but we won't be coming back.

Cebiche Lohi is disgusting, It's only a matter of time before something else goes in there.

The space was too large.

They tried to do too much: lunch, dinner, night club (in Wheat Ridge!)

sorry, a sentence disappeared from the post. The Wheat Ridge Cebiche is closed; there's no indication of what will go there next.

Did the Wheat Ridge one close down or just change names? The article was vary vague. I never go down 38th Ave anymore in Wheat Ridge ever since they cut down the street to 2 lanes.  It is too congested.

Does this article mean that the W 38th Ave restaurant closed, or merely that it is changing its name?

I've been to the Lower Highland location once and was thoroughly unimpressed with the food and the service. That was two years ago though, maybe things have changed.
