Boulder

Zudaka

A fully vegetarian, partly gluten-free menu includes an array of arepas, the traditional Venezulan corn meal dough pocket sandwich. Try the pabellon made of white rice, black beans, plantains, white cheese, one arepita, and meatless ground beef. 

The Bitter Bar

Snuggle up in this lounge for dinner, late-night nibbles (such as baked ricotta and lamb chops), dessert, or just enjoy the craft cocktails. Happy hour or late-night, this is the perfect place to unwind and indulge. 

Sink

Located in the basement of an old house, this restaurant has been a Boulder staple since 1923. Guests are encouraged to leave a piece of themselves behind and graffiti the six-and-a-half feet high ceilings. Try the texas onion straw burger, with provolone and cheddar cheeses, jalapenos, and a chipotle mayonnaise, or the buddha basil pizza, with tomato, tofu, spinach, artichoke hearts, and mozzarella. Both dishes were featured on the Food Network's Dinner's, Drive-ins and Dives. 

Tres Pupusas

This casual Latin bistro serves house-made Salvadoran pupusas (thick cornmeal tortillas stuffed with a variety of ingredients like meats, cheese, and vegetables), tamales, and pasteles.

The Kitchen Next Door

The newest member of the environmentally conscious Kitchen coterie, this community pub serves farm-to-table soups, salads, and sandwiches in a casual atmosphere. Libations include local beers, sustainable wines, and natural soda, and $2 of each kid's meal is donated to plant gardens in local schools. Try the beet burger with a side of kale chips. Don't miss the Glendale or Union Station locations. 

Pizzeria Locale

Inspired by the pizzerias of Napoli, Italy, this contemporary pizza joint offers a modern take on a traditional classic. It also features the first Stefano Ferrara oven in the state. Try the mais pizze with prosciutto cotto, sweet corn crème and fresh mozzarella.  Also try the newly launched fast-casual location in Denver.
