Frasca Food and Wine


Simply put, Frasca is the French Laundry of Colorado. That’s not surprising—owners Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson met at that storied Napa Valley, California, restaurant—but perhaps Frasca’s execution and consistency is even more impressive than its pedigree. Whether you’re there for a Monday night wine dinner, to taste the cooking of visiting chefs like Nancy Silverton (Mozza and other spots in Los Angeles), or to celebrate a special occasion like a celebrity, you will be treated like royalty when you walk through Frasca’s heavy walnut door. The ever-changing menus, both food and wine, are paeans to the gustatory traditions of Friuli in northern Italy—frico and tortellini, duck and dry-cured ham—and the service is effortlessly perfect. An evening spent at Frasca proves that Napa’s got nothing on us. 1738 Pearl St., Boulder, 303-442-6966
