Reader: LoDo has declined with the rise of other foodie areas

Reader: LoDo has declined with the rise of other foodie areas

Charlie Palmer, the celebrated New York-based chef and restaurateur who owns and operates dozens of restaurants across the country, will close Charlie Palmer's District Tavern and Wazee Wood-Fire Pizza at the end of dinner service -- less than a year after he first rolled into Denver. Did he misjudge the location? The market?

Says Denver Dave:

Not surprised - when they changed their concept and shortened service hours you could see the handwriting on the wall. I just don't think they'd done their homework on Lodo's demographic.

And maybe LoDo itself has a problem.

Says DanWinter:

It's a huge space with massive rents. And it's in an area that while still terrific, has certainly seen a decline since the emergence of other strong foodie areas (Highlands, LoHi, Uptown, etc).

What kind of new restaurants would work in LoDo? Post your suggestions below.
