Stones on 32nd opened quietly last month at 3211 Pecos Street, right across from Avanti in the booming Highland neighborhood. Owner Mike Stone turned a former garage that was last the home of Sportique into a restaurant specializing in "Colorado Comfort Food," with an unusually comforting amenity for this part of town: parking. But Leglock isn't impressed:

Nothing comforting about $14 burgers and shit I have never heard of.

And Mike has other concerns: 

Stop calling it LoHi...you sound like a bunch of hipster douchebags. It's North Denver or Northside.

Responds Brettman: 

Actually, look at a Denver neighborhood map — it is technically the Highland neighborhood of Denver. There are lots of BS marketing terms out there for neighborhoods (like LO-HI) but whether you like it or not, that is the official, technical, whatever... name for this area.

Concludes Matt: 

Don't call it Denver. It used to just be a molten ball of rock 4.6 billion years ago.

What do you call this part of town? What do you think of the restaurants in the area?

No matter what you call it, this part of town has great views of downtown.
