Reader: No Way That Park Hill Location Works for Sean Kelly's Concept

Yesterday we served up our list of Denver's Ten Best Neighborhood Restaurants — after a heated discussion in the office of what qualifies as a neighborhood restaurant. (Work & Class, we decided, has become a destination restaurant for the entire city over the past two years, which pushed it off any "neighborhood restaurant" list. Sean Kelly's new Desmond Bar & Grill at 2230 Oneida Street in Park Hill definitely qualified, we decided, but reader John disagrees:

No way that location works for what Sean is trying to do. It would be perfect for a neighborhood bistro or bar and grille. As it stands, it's a special occasion spot.

Have you visited Desmond? What do you think of what Sean Kelly is doing there? And what's your favorite neighborhood restaurant?
