The little brick storefront tucked under a looming tan awning at Iliff and Havana isn't exactly an eye catcher. Perhaps that's why restaurants -- including Sumo Sushi and Seoul Dook Baegi -- haven't had much success gaining a foothold. Newcomer (at least to Denver) Tofu House is the latest to hang its shingle here, offering a modern, clean-lined interior and a menu of Korean classics and modern creations. A history of the company captured on a wall placard describes its beginnings in a Seoul neighborhood in 1962 and the more recent spread to the U.S., starting in Los Angeles and now here on the Front Range.

We stopped in at the restaurant, which is now open, to get a glance of the updated interior.

Oh, that reminds me - actually, the reason Sumo Sushi and (less directly) Seoul Ddukbaegi closed was because they got enmeshed in a rather convoluted dispute with the owners of another now-closed business in the same stripmall, Happy Teriyaki #4 (count 'em!)

@weege0011 I think you will like it. The grilled beef over rice is very good, as are the abundant side dishes (which, on my visit, included a whole grilled fish! A small one of course). :D
