Ultimate Guide to Dining in Cherry Creek

There's a bit of a dining renaissance going on in this posh neighborhood. 

For a while, the posh area set between University and Colorado boulevards and 1st and 6th avenues, seemed to be in a dining rut with chains joining the scene at a fast pace. The last year, however, brought great changes to the scene and new restaurants that are showing that Cherry Creek is still a top-notch neighborhood for restaurants. The posh neighborhood added a lot of new places with MatsuhisaDeparture, and Quality Italian, being among them. Chef Mary Nguyen added a second (larger) location of Olive & Finch in the 'hood and the team behind the Kitchen restaurant group just launched the stunning Hedge Row.

The neighborhood does not seem to be slowing down. The team from 801 Chophouse group announced that plans to open 801 Fish on the ground floor of the Civica building at 250 Fillmore St. in Cherry Creek North, as BusinessDen first reported.
