After three decades of good work, Tante Louise finally faded from the Denver restaurant scene a few years ago. Enter uncle Ed Novak (from the Broker restaurants group), who renamed the place the Cork House after longtime owner Corky Douglass and turned the former classical Euro-French palace of haute into a comfortable, casual wine bar and restaurant with one of the best patios around. The happy hour deals are excellent, the dinner menu easily navigable, and the wine list interesting.
