There have been rumors for years that Lechuga's, one of the last old-time Italian joints in LoHi -- once known as "the North Side" -- is for sale. But now the property is officially listed -- with a hefty $3 million price tag.
The asking price may be outrageous. But there are also howls of outrage at the thought of losing another Italian institution.

Says Denver Dave:
The "gentrification" of this neighborhood is making me very sad. We are really losing so many iconic Denver businesses. NW Denver without Lechuga's cannolis and little devils - it really is a crime.

Have you been to Lechuga's? It's not too late -- the restaurant is still open, and will likely remain so until a deal goes through. Which, with this price tag, may not be all that soon.
