Denver's dining scene is booming, and while neighborhoods like RiNo and Berkeley are exploding, the city's suburbs are getting interesting new restaurants, too. In response to the news that Zomo will move in where El Tepehuan moved out, Jan says:

Who'd a'thunk that downtown Englewood could become a dining destination? I'd hate to see Twin Dragon driven out, however.  

The opening of Steuben's in Arvada inspired Cathy to write: 

FINALLY!! Some interesting dining in Arvada — the food desert.

But then there's this from Josh: 

Denver is suburbia. I thought I'd be taking public transportation and living in an apartment, but Denver is all driving and suburban houses, even in the so-called city.

What do you think of the restaurant boom outside Denver city limits? Are the suburbs becoming more urban — or is Denver becoming more suburban?

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.
