This past Saturday evening was certainly not my first experience at The Kitchen community restaurant, but it was as divine as my previous visits.
The Kitchen is as legitimately local as Boulder restaurants come. They purchase from Colorado farmers and the menu reflects such a commitment to fresh and local food. The company that joined me last Saturday boasted a wide variety of tastes–carnivores to pescatarians. The menu satisfied all, and there was even room for a few vegetarian or gluten-free friends. The table ranged from my delectable Colorado lamb sirloin, to a rich and robust hand rolled mushroom gnocchi.
The wine was paired perfectly at the selection of our excellent waiter, Ken. The atmosphere is rustic modern, patrons are lively but not rude, tasteful but not pretentious. The staff is pleasant and hard working, you can tell everyone enjoys their time there. My advice? Eat at The Kitchen as much as possible–it’s that diverse and delicious. If you’re looking for the perfect fit for a special occasion or , The Kitchen is second to none.
The Kitchen Next Door is a bit more casual, but the menu is just as locally delicious. Not to mention those $9 pitchers.
