Reader: The Northside Ruined? Berkeley Is Only Getting Better
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.
Future home of The Royal on Tennyson Street.
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?
