Boulder

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. 

Freshii

Enjoy fresh salads, wraps, rice bowls, burritos, soups, and more at this fast-casual health hub. Customize your own order, or try a fast-ticket meal like spicy lemon grass soup or the Warrior Chicken Bowl.
