Reader: Uber Sausage brings fast casual to LoHi

Sweet! Although LoHi has lost Living the Sweet Life, that space at 1535 Central Street won't be empty long. Über Sausage is taking it over, and will open a second spot -- twice as big as the original on Colfax -- this spring. "I love this neighborhood, I love the restaurants over there and there's just such great synergy, and I think we can add to that positive synergy," says co-owner Marco Macchiaro.

The news got a warm welcome -- laced with a little irony.

Says David:

Where are all the commentors who were angry two days ago when we said there is a need for fast casual in LoHi? You mad now?

Not Mantonat, who's looking forward to the new addition to the neighborhood.

One of life's simplest pleasures is an Über Sausage double Swiss with a maß of Prost dunkel. Nice to know I'll be able to grab a sandwich and walk over to the brewery, even if the Über truck isn't there that day.

What do you think of Über Sausage coming to LoHi? What else does the neighborhood need?
