Reader: Cafe Society voters got the Street 16 finalists right

We're down to the last two neighborhoods in our Street 16 menu matchup, which has pitted sixteen of the area's hottest dining destinations against each other.

And what a match it is: South Federal Boulevard, the strip that holds many of this city's greatest ethnic restaurants, against Lower Highland, or LoHi, the up-and-coming area that's home to some of Denver's hippest eateries, along with old-time Italian and Mexican joints.

May the best menu win!

Says Mantanot: My current neighborhood vs the last place I lived! Can't decide - but I think Cafe Society voters really got it right having these two in the championship.

Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 1; we'll announce the winner Monday. See all of our earlier Street 16 matchups here.
