American

Braun Taphaus & Grille

This German-style taphouse serves up American comfort food and offers 20 rotating beers on tap.

The Plimoth

This new American restaurant draws from classic Italian and French cuisines, but abandons pretentiousness. An emphasis on local farmers and ingredients results in an ever-changing menu of seasonal dishes.

Sugarmill

This dessert shack—part of the TAG family—is tiny as can be. The menu focuses on plated desserts, but is rather inclusive—featuring savory dishes like quiches, sandwiches, and salads. Opt for the chocolate jasmine bar. 

Work & Class

This elevated meat-and-three tiered menu offers a unique hybrid of American and Peruvian cuisine. Our pick: the buffalo-style rotisserie chicken, sweet potato-and-bacon hash, rosemary-roasted root vegetables, and the cheddar-bacon spoonbread. 

Humboldt Farm Fish Wine

Relaxed American dining in Uptown. The varied menu offers re-interpreted American classics and an impressive fresh oyster selection. If you're not opting for the sustainable seafood, try the burger. 

 

Session Kitchen

This is a gastropub for the masses. This 290-seat dining room offers an innovative "East-meets-West" vibe. The menu is decorated with fresh, light, and farm-intensive dishes. 

Acorn

First-class Boulder eatery Oak at Fourteenth dials it down a bit with this Denver iteration. Contemporary American cuisine is served from an oak oven and grill and you'll notice some familiar dishes, like the kale salad. The ambitious bar menu complements the nuanced urban environment of the Source complex.

Fresh Thymes Eatery

From taste to nutritional value to environmental impact, this food sings "kumbaya." As a community-supported restaurant, this eatery offers yearly memberships starting at $250. The noncomittal can simply walk in and try the grass-finished burger with housemade pickles and corn and arugula salad. 

Big Smoke Burger

Customize your own handcrafted burger with toppings such as jalapeño havarti and roasted peppers. Or opt for a signature creation, like the Colorado lamb burger crowned with a feta and cilantro-based spread. Try it with a side of poutine.

Snarf Burger

What's not to love about Snarf's new concept, the Snarf Burger? This spin-off of Boulder's legendary sandwich shop hosts a new menu: hamburgers, deep-fried hot dogs and bologna sandwiches, and frozen custard. Look for the Lafayette location to open soon.
