Pagliacci's, a Northside landmark for fifty years, closed in August 2012.
Pagliacci's, a Northside landmark for fifty years, closed in August 2012.

Our list of Denver's top old-school Italian restaurants inspired many memories of classic Northside red-sauce joints that have closed -- Pagliacci's, Little Pepina's, Carbone's, Longo's Subway Tavern -- and also a heated discussion of whether the people moving into what's now generally called Highland (or LoHi) have ruined the neighborhood and culture, as one reader suggests.

Responds davebarnes:

I will counter with Berkeley.

Tennyson Street (38th-46th) is MUCH improved thanks to the upper-middle class scum and their money.

And, it is only going to get better in the next five years.

One of the things that might make it better? A new burger place, The Royal, courtesy of Jelly's owner. But readers have concerns about that, too. Read their comments here -- and post your own thoughts below: What do you think of what's happening in Berkeley?
