Reader: Tarbell's and the Oven were doomed at Streets at SouthGlenn

The news that both

Tarbell's and the Oven had closed at the Streets at SouthGlenn

saddened fans in the southern suburbs, as well as the Cafe Society scribes who'd awarded Tarbell's the

Best Burger

award in the Best of Denver 2011.

But davebarnes has a different take:

Not sad. Overpriced.

Every one of the developers of these "streets" needs to (re-)read Jane Jacobs. A [successful] neighborhood needs both Class A space AND Class D space. Rents need to be affordable for a variety of businesses. Restaurateurs need to think long and hard about the numbers before diving into these ventures.
