Directly across the street from Swing Thai
, less than a block away from Fontana Sushi
, exactly one block from Thai Basil
and a short three-block walk from Crazy Asian Cafe
, sits the future home of Asian Diner. And once it opens at 295 South Pennsylvania Street, that will make five Asian restaurants within a bamboo plant of each other. The vacated space -- a former bookstore -- doesn't show any inward signs of an impending restaurant, Asian or otherwise, but the liquor license notice on the front window suggests forward progress, as least when it comes to liquids, since the hearing with the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses is set for Friday, November 6.
