North Denver Original Restaurants History
Long before the word hipster existed, Sunnyside, Lohi, Potter Highland, Jefferson Park, Berkeley, West Highland and Sloan’s Lake were all know as one area with a few names. Northwest Denver was called: The North Side, North Denver and NorthWest Denver.
1921 – 1990
Each era brought different flavors to the neighborhoods. Below is a list of North Denver Original Restaurants that still deserve our attention.
In the 80’s and before, homes sold for 10% of current values. Denver’s North Side was an affordable area that saw a few waves of immigration. Each group has shaped the culture of NorthWest Denver. Many businesses that served those eras are still in place and deserve some of our attention.
It is pretty easy to get great pizza, craft beer, ice cream, sushi and every other taste of our current culture.
However, and a 10 year resident of Sunnyside, there are a few that I enjoy and do not hit anyone’s radar anymore. Many have gone as the neighborhood has “improved”
