Cherry Creek North is changing, and the most recent development is the closing of Rodney's, after close to three decades in the neighborhood. That's a sign, Denver Dave suggests, that CCN is "becoming another food court in any mall USA."
But other readers disagree.
Denver Dave needs to look around CCN a little more closely. There are a bunch of new independent restaurants that have just opened in the neighborhood such as Machete, Marg's, La Merise, the Hawt Dawg (sp?), Tony P.'s, Phat Thai and the new Creole place on Steele. While CCN is not necessarily a destination restaurant neighborhood, the closing of Rodney's signals nothing except that it was time for it to go. It was a horrible space that often smelled and the food was not that great.
