At Uncle, Tommy Lee has turned the flavors of his youth into the restaurant of the moment. With just two summers at McCormick's Fish House and a few years at Chipotle under his belt, he borrowed money from his family to open his own place. The noodle shop opened in Highland in the fall of 2012 and went from zero to sixty -- i.e., not yet open to always packed -- in less time than it would take a Bugatti Veyron to do the same. People from northwest Denver as well as across town crowd the cramped, counter-driven storefront eatery, eager to try everything on the limited menu: a handful of appetizers, including amazing tofu; steamed buns; and a few vegetable and noodle dishes. In China, "uncle" is a term of endearment -- and Denver diners are feeling very fond of this Uncle.
