Reader: Cherry Creek is no more than a large convenience store for aging, unwelcoming locals

Tony P's went pasta point of no return in Cherry Creek.
Tony P's closed in Cherry Creek this past weekend, and while owner Tony Pasquini has certainly had a tough couple of years, his family feud might have been less a factor in the restaurant's closing than the location of this Tony P's: Cherry Creek. That's the theory of one reader, at least.

Says rawdoggin:

This says more to me about the deep sucking sound that Cherry Creek has produced for businesses over the past 15 years and less about this particular restaurant. Difficult to access and even more ridiculous to park in, Cherry Creek is no more than a large convenience store for an aging and unwelcoming local population. Just look at the shops that still stand. There are exceptions, and it is certainly the prerogative of the locals, but if the Cherry Cricket closes, I say we sell Cherry Creek to China for $10.32.

But would China pay it? What do you think of the Cherry Creek dining scene?

It's for financially-secure senior citizens with failing taste buds or dim wits that live around the area. Phat Thai closed to become something more 'befitting' to the 'neighborhood'-Hermans, bore.  The best place to eat around there is Hapa, and that is only for the stellar happy hour. Good riddance I wish to Cherry Creek, ugh

Bookstores are worth going to, no matter where they're at.

As Yogi Berra would say....no one goes there anymore - it's too crowded.

You are correct have been many unsuccessful restaurants in Cherry Creek, however I would argue that there are many successful restaurants and I think CCN gets a bad rap for the parking.  There is a pay lot directly behind Tony's P's.  I am in CCN often any always find a spot within a block of my destination.  This is not a case it LoHi.  The Cherry Cricket's burger is very over rated especially in the burger rich dining in Denver.

As long as Ondo's and the Hermitage Bookstore are still there, I will continue to make my way to Cherry Creek. The Cricket's great too, but I rarely go anymore since there are so many other great burger places around with fewer bros in backwards ball caps.
