My Hometown Guide – The Best of Boulder

Liz sheds a little light on the amazing food that can be found in Boulder, Colorado.
By Liz Swartz


1. The Kitchen Next Door


This place is so much more than farm to table (which if you ask me is getting a little played out). The Kitchen Nextdoor is a revolution. From the honey Sriracha chicken wings, to the vegetarian meatloaf, anyone can find something amazing here. In 2015, the KND is opening their first out-of-state restaurant in Chicago, IL. Honey Sriracha wings for all!
What to try: Potato smashers with the honey Sriracha sauce.

2. Fresh Thymes Eatery


When I asked Christine Ruch, the creator of this magic place, why she thought her restaurant was the embodiment of Boulder, she said that people shouldn’t have to sacrifice their food beliefs to get a fast meal. Her menu includes delicious options for gluten free folks, lactose intolerant peeps, and you can feel good about all of the ingredients that go into her dishes.
What to try: Chickpea flatbread or the magic bar.

4. Salt Bistro


ou just can’t go wrong at Salt. It is consistently great and most things on the menu will blow your freakin’ mind. What are the best two things in the world? Correct, cheese plates and pasta. Well guess what? Salt has an amazing cheese selection and they make their pasta in house (which if you’re wondering does make a difference).
What to try: Wild Boar potato gnocchi with braised brussels sprouts.

5. Pizzeria Locale


You may not get a pizza cutter here but you’ll be so busy stuffing your face hole to notice. These pizzas can only be described with one word: Crazemazing. The menu is split between white and red sauce pizzas, but it really doesn’t matter which pizza you pick. It will meet the aforementioned standard of crazemazing.
What to try: Funghi mozzarella pizza or literally anything else.
