The hits keep coming on Cherry Creek North, which just lost Argyll and Toast, but will soon be gaining Wrap Dawgs, as Lori Midson reported yesterday.

All the dish coming out of Cherry Creek prompted this from denveronaspit:

First the Tattered Cover and then my beloved Roo Bar is forced out. It's taken a while, but now Cherry Creek is getting exactly what it deserves: Wrap Dawgz! If there is such a thing as neighborhood karma, this is it!

There won't be much mourning over Toast, judging from the comments that greeted that news. And Argyll clearly has its foes as well as its fans. Owner Robert Thompson plans to reopen Argyll in the Baker neighborhood, just off Broadway, but at least one Baker neighbor isn't looking forward to its move to his 'hood:

Keep that pretentious crap outta my backyard! Better yet, take it up to the highlands where there's more of a market for that..... We like our tacos, wine, dives, art, music,smelly bookstores, smut and, pizza just they way it is; with a hint of that mile high grime, sans mid-western yup transplants and colfax crack heads.

Is the Cherry Creek dining scene Toast? Post your thoughts below, or join yesterday's conversation here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
