    I don't remember if it was posted, but here's a similar article from a hockey writer Fluto Shinzawa from last year:

    That's a pretty good article. 
     
    My favorite takeaway was that the "venerable" Rocky Mountain Diner in Denver closed last year. I went there with wanderingjew a few years ago and found the place to be exceptionally unremarkable.

    I remember the setting to being akin to a Chili's.  Face it - we had differing views on the place from the get-go. That they are out of business, is no surprise (or loss) to me.

    I understand they lost their lease- you know the same way the 2nd Ave Deli did- the Landlord wanted to triple the rent or something like that- there was an article about that-
     
    Now it's been a really long time since I've been to a Chili's but I cant' remember one that looked like this

    Are you sure it wasn't remarkably unexceptional?

    Or maybe Remarkably Unremarkable????

    Here's the story on why the Rocky Mountain Diner closed
     
    I do agree with TTM, the food itself was nothing to write home about

    Where does it say that this is the writer's favorite?

    Straight from the writer's mouth. He's my nephew. Obviously, he didn't mention the name in his article.

    Thanks for the clarification.  We are all jealous of your nephew's job.
