Black Cat Bistro Metropolitan

By Carol W. Maybach

1964 13th St., Boulder

The Draw: Straight-off-the-vine freshness captured in classic American and European cuisine.
The Drawback: Limited wines, particularly by the glass.
Don't Miss: The Pacific halibut with English peas, lemon, leeks, and country ham; the flourless chocolate cake with malted milk ice cream and warm white chocolate.
Vegetarian Options: The menu changes regularly, but veggies and herbs are often straight from chef Eric Skokan's garden.
