In LoDo, where 8 Rivers moved in October 2008, chef/owner Scott Durrah has a decent-sized space -- not huge, but maybe three times larger than his old spot in Highland. He has a bar set with bottles of Mount Gay and Appleton Estate rum, and decorated with album covers from reggae and dub bands. He has a suitable and relaxed staff that moves easily between the widely spaced tables. He even has a fireplace. Above all, he has a nice buzz going, as customers keep coming for his wonderful and traditional Jamaican and Caribbean food.
