The T-Wa Inn, Denver's first Vietnamese restaurant, closed earlier this year on Federal Boulevard, leaving a building with good bones for a new owner to take over. Given the demographic of the area, another Vietnamese eatery would not have been a surprise, but instead Mariscos El Licenciado -- which started as a Mexican seafood truck -- took over the space at the end of summer, initially continuing to serve from the truck in the parking lot while the owners remodeled the interior. After a few weekends of soft openings, the restaurant officially opened seven days a week at the beginning of the month. Photographer Danielle Lirette snapped a few photos of the maritime-themed dining room and Pacific coastal cuisine.
