Taki's closes on East Colfax, ending a two-decade run

Colfax Avenue has seen a lot of changes since Hisashi Takimoto opened Taki's two decades ago. And Taki's went through changes, too, including a couple of locations and a variety of names: Taki's Healthy Japanese Food Restaurant, Taki's Golden Bowl. After Takimoto passed away in 2009, the restaurant got a new owner, Keiho Omine, and earlier this year, it got a major renovation, a new menu and another variation on it's name: Taki's Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar. But regulars reported that it was hard to find a time when Taki's was open -- and now it looks like it could be gone for good.

A sign on the door reports that Taki's has closed.

"Given that the dining room was empty I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only regular customer to turn around and never come back," says one former customer.

"We all miss Taki-san!" says another.

And that miso soup, which regulars swore was better than a shot for fending off the flu.
