Reader: We lost the Rocky Mountain Diner for this?

Ghost Plate & Tap opened in June 2011 in the historic Ghost Building. It had a great location (the former home of the Rocky Mountain Diner) and savvy owners: the Wynkoop/Breckenridge crew. But Ghost won't be around to celebrate its second birthday; it's closing on Friday. Initially, the restaurant was envisioned as sort of a "greatest hits" concept, but it wasn't a big enough hit with diners.

Wow! We lost the Rocky Mountain Diner for all of this. Nice job, guys.
What should be the next incarnation for the Ghost building? What kind of bar/restaurant does this part of downtown need?
