Reader: Phat Thai closed to become something more fitting for Cherry Creek -- bore

The changes continue in Cherry Creek, where Tony P's closed on Sunday -- the day after Mark Fischer shuttered Phat Thai, which will become Harman's Eat and Drink at the end of this month. "The menu is focused on seasonal American cuisine, and it's approachable without compromising our approach to cooking -- it's not dumbed down or any less chef-y; it's cooked, prepared and served with integrity," promises Fischer.

But will that play in Cherry Creek? See also: - Tony P's goes pasta point of no return in Cherry Creek - Reader: Cherry Creek is no more than a large convenience store for aging, unwelcoming locals - Mark Fischer opening Harman's Eat and Drink in Cherry Creek in June

Says ughno:

It's for financially-secure senior citizens with failing taste buds or dim wits that live around the area. Phat Thai closed to become something more 'befitting' to the 'neighborhood'-Harman's, bore. The best place to eat around there is Hapa, and that is only for the stellar happy hour. Good riddance I wish to Cherry Creek, ugh.
