Boulder

Cantina Laredo (Boulder)

An upscale Mexican restaurant that utilizes quality ingredients to make tasty plates like brisket tacos and enchiladas made with artichoke hearts and avocado. Be sure to try their Sunday brunch. 

 

Boulder Baked

Get your sugar fix at this bakery, where you can choose from more than 28 baked-to-order cookies like chocolate chip and ginger doodle. If you're in the mood for something savory, go for tomato soup and a grilled-cheese sandwich.

 

Frasca Food and Wine

A respect for honest ingredients coupled with innovation and technique helped skyrocket Frasca chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson to one of Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chefs. That was in 2005, but the accolades continue to pile up with nods in Bon Appétit, Gourmet, the New York Times, Esquire, and James Beard. Master sommelier Bobby Stuckey and his gracious staff charm diners in the elegant, understated dining room.

Arugula Bar e Ristorante

This upscale Boulder restaurant serves natural, contemporary Italian cuisine. Try the Colorado bison bolognese with orecchiette pasta, fresh herbs, and shaved Grana Padano. 

West End Tavern

Enjoy meatloaf with a microbrew at this neighborhood tavern. Rooftop dining available.

Salt The Bistro

Try the Teton Waters pasture-raised rib-eye steak with butternut squash and potato gratin and garlic-seared escarole.

 

Larkburger

The idea at this eatery is a fast casual—not fast food—version of the burger, fry, and shake combo. Try cooked-to-order burgers made from all-natural Black Angus beef, excellent all-natural, gluten-free milkshakes, and hand-cut truffle-and-Parmesan fries. Multiple locations.
