Reader: Help the restaurant-starved East Denverites!

Inside the Bistro at Stapleton.
The Bistro at Stapleton opened last week, in an area hungry for new dining options. But win some, lose some: The sad news also came that to the west in Park Hill, Latke Love will be closing at the end of the month.

Says Rebecca:

Let other restaurants take note! Help the restaurant-starved East Denverites!
Gretchen Kurtz recently reviewed the Abbey Tavern, which she says is a great addition to east Denver -- but options in Park Hill and points east are few and far between.When you're in northeast Denver, where do you eat?

And what other parts of metro Denver are starved for restaurants?

If we're talking strictly about the food, and leaving aside other criteria :) I would add Thai Street Food in Aurora to this list.

Good places for soul food include W T's Snack Shop and A & A Fish Market & Restaurant... not forgetting CoraFaye's of course.

Salaam's Fish & Chips in Montbello has good... fish & chips (!)

I also have to put a word in for the Green Valley Ranch branch of African Grill & Bar which is just as good as the one in Aurora.

And when the Aurora outpost of Pacific Ocean Marketplace opens in a few weeks, that complex will not only be home to the Vietnamese offerings of Kim Ba, but also at least five other eateries (including a Korean BBQ from the folks who brought you Shin Sa Dong).

We're getting a three-story African mall over here soon too, with even more restaurants and markets...

I'd say we're pretty lucky on this side of town :)

I am going to exaggerate and say that there are no restaurants east of Colorado Blvd in Denver.

When we decided to move from Bonnie Brae in 2010, we looked at Lowry and rejected it. One of the reasons was lack of restaurants.

Having settled into Berkeley, I can say there is an abundance of restaurants on the North Side.

Actually, the soul food and fish 'n' chip places I mention above kind of overlap with one another (culinarily speaking) now that I think about it.

@davebarnes  Seems like it's getting better - City Set in Glendale, a few options in Stapleton and Lowry, more neighborhood places opening in Park Hill and Hilltop, more option along Colfax, etc. Maybe just a little more driving required. I used to live in Mayfair and it was a great residential neighborhood (I know, I know, it's not an official Denver neighborhood), but the walking options were extremely limited.

You know, on that subject, another good place out here is Diego's Restaurant which has soul food, Mexican, and Italian items on their newly revamped menu. Their signature burger has a hot link and fried egg right on it.

So give them a try and see what you think. They are on the northeast corner of 6th/Chambers (in fact, they are the restaurant portion of the nightclub called The Kasbah).

And since you'll be right there anyway :D don't forget to stop by Senada Bakery in the same stripmall and sample their delicious Bosnian baked goods.
