The third Dae Gee will open soon at 460 Broadway — but it can't be soon enough for fans of Korean food. And especially for fans of all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue. Lauren Monitz recently checked out that deal at the second Dae Gee, at 827 Colorado Boulevard, and while she was disappointed to see that the do-it-yourself grills have still not been installed on the tables (someone light a fire under the city permitting department!), the deal itself did not disappoint. "We're letting them know what Korean food is about," 33-year-old chef-owner Joseph Kim told Gretchen Kurtz earlier this year. "We're reaching the masses." And giving them good food, says Mike:
Having spent a year in Korea, Dae Gee #1 is how I remember Korean food. Joe has got it right, and I thank him.
Love this place! But please don't tell everyone about it!
