Reader: The Ramen Scene Isn't Leaving, but Restaurants Are Risky Businesses
If you didn't find Tengu, it's too late.
Tengu, one of the first in the recent wave of noodle bars to wash up in Denver, closed quietly last week. Was it a victim of a city awash in other options? High prices? Or just poor signage? Says Jeanie:
I ate ramen when we were young and broke; why would I go to a upscale restaurant and eat it? I'll bet it isn't 25 cents to eat it there.
So very disappointing. They served up great ramen in really cool space.
Restaurants are the riskiest business to get into. The ramen scene isn't leaving. I never heard of this place but if it was in an obscure location with constant construction, no wonder it closed.
Will you miss Tengu? Where do you go when you want noodles?
