Restaurant Reviews and Recommendations:

You can also follow my restaurant reviews on Google+ and on YellowScene.com.


  • Pica’s Mexican Taqueria — Some of the best tacos in Boulder.
  • The Rio Grande Restaurant — Cheap and easy; but they have OK Mexican food, good Margaritas, and a fun rooftop patio.
  • The Bitter Bar — My favorite place for cocktails in Boulder.
  • Basta — Innovative cuisine. Order anything on the menu that says “sous vide.”
  • SALT the Bistro — Solid farm-to-table dining.
  • Flagstaff House — Best views in Boulder, and one of the swankiest dining locations. Go for happy hour if you can’t afford to go for dinner.
  • Larkburger — Really, REALLY good fast casual burgers.
  • Pizzeria da Lupo — Good wood-fired pizza and an amazing Brussels sprouts salad.
  • Pizzeria Locale — Amazing Neopolitan-style pizza.
  • Beehive — Really hip, great food.
  • Jill’s at the St. Julien — Go for the lunch buffet or order something en flambe tableside at dinner.
  • Zoe Ma Ma — Authentic Chinese street food. The duck wonton soup is to die for.
  • Cafe Aion — Small plates, tapas, and a breakfast that will blow your mind. Local, hand crafted. Amazing.
