Reader: It's Highlands to realtors, the North Side to old-timers

For this week's reviews, Laura Shunk visited two old standbys in Denver's hottest new restaurant neighborhood: Carbone's Italian Sausage Deli and Lechuga's. The description of the area prompted this from Steve065:

You called it northwest Denver instead of Highlands! For those of us who grew up here, it was always just the North Side. I don't mind "Highlands" (especially since my property values continue to rise), but I sometimes fear my neighborhood is losing its identity. I understand that change is inevitable when living in the city. But I also sincerely appreciate what the new restaurant scene has brought as well. The only thing "Highlands" about Lechuga's is its location. And I mean that in a good way.
