Uptown vs. South Broadway in this match-up. Show your pride, residents! Or if you don't live in either spot, let us know which area is tops for dining out.
Pull up a map and stick a pin somewhere, anywhere, along 17th Avenue between Broadway and York Street, and the chances are good you'll hit an excellent restaurant. This stretch of asphalt that runs through Denver's Uptown neighborhood boasts about two dozen eateries, from longtime fixtures like the Avenue Grill and Strings to such modern mainstays as Steuben's and the Vine Street Pub to date-night hotspots like Olivea and D Bar Desserts, along with some rollicking bars, trendy coffee shops and a vegetarian mecca.
And here's South Broadway:
One of Denver's grittiest, busiest stretches is also now one of its hippest, especially between First and Alameda avenues, where the crowds hitting the movie theater or live-music performances can eat before or after the show at any number of chef-driven, classic or ethnic eateries. From the side-by-side pleasures of Deluxe and Delite to the fairy-tale interior of Beatrice & Woodsley, to the devilish fun at El Diablo to the slammin' sammies at Sputnik, you'll know you've arrived when you're eating on South Broadway.
