Readers: The Suburbs Are Becoming Dining Destinations!

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?
