From fine dining to casual comfort to Boulder’s summertime Farmers Market, there are endless choices in our town to satisfy the most enthusiastic foodie.
Stroll down Pearl to visit the two-time James Beard Award-winning Frasca Food and Wine. Also just steps from The Bradley, is Mateo, inspired by the simple dishes of the Provence region of France. Across the street from The Bradley is Aji, a Boulder favorite for Latin American and Caribbean creations and next door, is Leaf, offering fresh vegan and vegetarian dishes. The Mountain Sun is the local rock climber’s hot spot for great burgers and micro-brews. Boulder is famous for its brew pubs and you could try a new one every night of the week with a side of bluegrass music! Jump in the car and head out to Avery Brewery (about 15 minutes from The Bradley) and try one of their fresh new hops. Back in town, The Boulder Dushanbe Tea House brings the Far East close to home with world cuisine and the most proper afternoon tea this side of the pond. For that perfect Margarita, The Rio Grande offers one that packs a punch as well as crowd-pleasing nachos and steak enchiladas. The Kitchen, Salt, JAX Fish House and Centro are all local favorites and are easily found just a short walk from The Bradley Inn.
A summer dinner at Chautauqua Dining Hall and afterwards a show at the famous Chautauqua Auditorium is a local’s favorite way to spend a perfect evening in Boulder. Or dine above the city lights with haute-American cuisine from the famous Flag Staff House restaurant.
