Scott Durrah has moved 8 Rivers from Highland to LoDo

One River dries up, 8 Rivers LoDo is open

"Highlands is no more." That's the word from 8 Rivers, which closed its original Denver (but not its original metro) location at 3609 West 32nd Avenue this week. Jason Sheehan loved the place when he reviewed it last November: loved the food, loved the history, loved the fact that chef/owner Scott Durrah had opened his Jamaican restaurant in this land-locked city after first trying Santa Monica, then Superior, Colorado.

But don't worry. Be happy. Because even though the tiny Highland spot is gone, 8 Rivers is bigger -- and, presumably, better -- than ever: Today, it finally opened its LoDo location at 1550 Blake, in a much bigger space that's serving both breakfast and lunch in a place "where island flavor and mile high style converge."
