4 Alba Ristorante Address: 2480 Canyon Blvd, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Italian Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Alba Restaurant and Wine Bar is the epitome of Italian dining in Boulder, Colorado. After many trips to Piemonte, Italy’s most prominent wine region, owners Rick and Susan Stein finally realized their dream of an authentic Italian restaurant with the opening of Alba. SRG Notes: Don’t let the location fool you! Also, since it’s next to the Boulder Marriott, this can be a great option for clients staying there. They have an outdoor patio as well. 4

5 Arabesque Address: 1634 Walnut St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Middle Eastern Cost: $$, $10-$15 per entrée Short Description: Manal and Saib Jarrar opened Arabesque in the heart of Boulder in October The name, Arabesque, is a classical ballet position requiring a high expression of elegance and balance and is often used to judge the dancer’s level of skill. As a former ballet instructor, Manal has translated the gracefulness of form into her savory dishes. SRG Notes: A good example of Cultural Curiosity. Delicious food and an atmosphere that feels like you are eating in someone’s home rather than a restaurant. The small space could possibly be a problem for large groups. For your more adventurous culinary clients. 5

6 Arugula Bar and Ristorante Address: 2785 Iris Ave, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Italian Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Arugula is elegant Italian dining with the warmth of home in a modern environment, infusing the best of Italian culinary tradition with our contemporary interpretations. They pride themselves on using ingredients grown based on traditional practices, helping to remind us of our connection to the land and the seasons. SRG Notes: Very accommodating staff. Location can take large groups and will have an even better private dining space finished by the middle of June. A nice quiet spot with great service that is perfect for client dinners. 6

7 Black Cat Address: th St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: French, American, and Organic Cost: $$$, $20–25 per entrée Short Description: Black Cat Farm Table Bistro serves inspired, organic cuisine based on the just- picked produce from its own 70-acre farm. By day, chef-farmer Eric Skokan cares for the vegetables in his fields. Each evening finds him in the kitchen crafting dishes on his daily changing menu. The same care goes into the restaurant’s award-winning wine list, boasting over 300 selections. SRG Notes: Eric is one of our Culinary Council stars and a very friendly host. Mention SRG when arriving and making reservations. As we constantly mention, this is a great example of More with Less, and Community Connected. Has received mixed reviews on service and food experiences, but the majority opinion is that it is a great place for clients. 7

8 Bombay Bistro Address: 1214 Walnut St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Indian/Asian Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: The menu incorporates traditional Indian flavors with a variety of cooking techniques. They strive to use the freshest ingredients by supporting local farmers of Colorado. SRG Notes: Located in our very own building, Bombay Bistro has nice Indian food. The owner is very appreciative of our business. A good example of Cultural Curiosity. 8

9 The Boulder Dushanbe Tea House Address: th Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: International Cost: $, under $10 per entrée Short Description: Traditional Persian tea house with over 100 types of teas and a full bar. “This is a gift to the people of Boulder to make their souls happy...” The Tea House, which officially opened May 15, 1998, is a gift from Boulder’s sister city, Dushanbe, Tajikistan, and is the most significant and largest piece of Central Asian art and the only one of its kind in the western hemisphere. Handcrafted by over 40 Tajik artisans, the Tea House is a feast for the eyes with its vibrant colors, patterns, and furnishings. The Tea House features an eclectic international menu and teas from all over the world. SRG Notes: The Tea House is a fun, unique place to take clients. The service is normally quite slow, but the décor and style make up for it. This would be a great place for tea or coffee or maybe lunch, but leave dinner to a different restaurant. 9

10 Brasserie Ten Ten Address: 1011 Walnut, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: French Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Brasserie Ten Ten has been delighting customers with French-inspired cuisine since its opening in Executive Chef Anthony Hessel brings his vast experience to this friendly and bustling setting, making it a perfect place to enjoy lunch or dinner. SRG Notes: Brasserie Ten Ten is a festive French brasserie with a great wine list, but is often too loud for large groups of clients. Service can sometimes be hit or miss. Can be very busy at lunch. 10

11 Centro Address: 950 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Latin American, Mexican, and Spanish Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: From our soulfully delicious food expertly created by executive chef Ian Clark to our handcrafted cocktails, Centro is a restaurant that is fun, right down to your core. Our experienced and professional staff ensures a memorable evening as you enjoy a seat in our warm rustic dining room or at our indoor-outdoor bar while you munch on a blue-crab torta with avocado and spicy lemon or the day- long roasted chicken with hot rice salad, sweet molé, and sesame. If you are a vegetarian, try our mouth-watering chile- glazed tofu with apricot pearl couscous. And don’t forget to complement your meal with one of our amazing pisco sours or hibiscus fruit punch. SRG Notes: Centro is a fun, lively place for clients. Possible for large groups at their community table, just might be a bit loud. The patio is a nice option for larger parties and wonderful in the spring, summer, and fall, especially now that they have extended the awning. A great example of Cultural Curiosity. Definitely mention SRG—the head chef, Ian Clark, is a workshop regular, Culinary Council member, and married to our very own Bryce Clark. 11

12 Flagstaff House Address: 1138 Flagstaff Rd., Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Continental, American, French Cost: $$$$, $25+ per entrée Short Description: The Flagstaff House Restaurant is Colorado’s premier dining experience. Owners Don and his sons, Mark and Scott, have created a unique fine-dining experience combining an award-winning wine list, exquisite food, and detailed service with the personal touch of a family- owned restaurant. The Flagstaff House Restaurant sits nestled on the mountainside at an elevation of 6,000 feet and was originally a cabin built in The Monette family has owned the Flagstaff House since 1971 and has greatly expanded the property, featuring floor-to-ceiling picture windows and several outside terraces. SRG Notes: Flagstaff House has one of the best views in Boulder and is known as one of the best restaurants. Unfortunately, the décor and style are quite outdated. It is possibly still worth a visit for the view, but other restaurants, such as Frasca, can deliver a formal dining experience with a better atmosphere. It is wonderful to head up to Flagstaff when the weather is nice so you can enjoy the food from the terrace. Old-school cuisine, GREAT wine list, very formal. 12

13 Frasca Food and Wine Address: 1738 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Northeastern Italian and American Cost: $$$$, $25+ per entrée Short Description: Frasca is a neighborhood restaurant inspired by the cuisine and culture of Friuli, Italy. The menu changes seasonally to make the most of current harvests and the freshest produce, herbs, and spices. It favors products from the best local farmers and purveyors and reflects Friulian sensibilities about ingredients and proportion according to weather, climate, and calendar. And above all, it is Friulian. Each dish is inspired by the sophisticated flavors and international influences of the area that are at once quintessentially Italian yet unique to this extraordinary region. Frasca is the creation of master sommelier Bobby Stuckey and chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson. Their shared passion for Friuli-Venezia Giulian cuisine and fine wine is reflected in the exquisitely prepared fare and a comprehensive wine list boasting over 200 varieties. SRG Notes: Frasca is one of the most well-known and most respected restaurants in Boulder. Mention to the hostess that you are with SRG. Bobby Stuckey, the sommelier and part owner, is a great charmer who is on our Culinary Council. The wine list is incredible and Bobby always has a great suggestion. (The staff are all very knowledgeable as well). The full menu is $70 per person for four courses. You can also order à la carte. Appetizers are $15 each, pastas $20, and entrées $36. There is a space that can comfortably sit 8–10 people in the dining room, but any more people and we suggest looking elsewhere (or paying for a private room, which is also an option). 13

14 Hapa Address: 1117 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Asian fusion, sushi Cost: $$$, $10–20 per entrée Short Description: Sushi and Asian fusion in an atmosphere where Tokyo meets New York SRG Notes: Hapa is a very modern and funky sushi spot. For more conservative clients and serious sushi connoisseurs, I would suggest Sushi Tora or Kasa, but if your client is young and funky (and possibly a hipster?), Hapa is a wonderful place. Be aware that some of the names of the sushi rolls are awkwardly sexual. Service is frequently lacking. 14

15 Happy Address: 835 Walnut St., Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Asian fusion Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: Happy is fresh, unique, and affordable Asian-inspired comfort food paired with attentive, friendly service and unforgettable handcrafted cocktails. SRG Notes: Happy has a wonderfully eclectic menu but can sometimes be a bit too much for unadventurous eaters. But if your client is interested in global fare, this is a great spot. Mention SRG and say hi to John Mark, the Manager, as well as Mark Stoddard, the head bartender, when you arrive. I would suggest having everyone start with one of Mark’s cocktails–he is one of the best bartenders in the country and a member of our Culinary Council, as is Sam Proia, the head chef, and John Mark. Happy can accommodate large parties with plenty of notice, but has a minimum amount requirement to rent the lounge area for larger groups. 15

16 Jax Fish House Address: 928 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Seafood and American Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: An award-winning seafood restaurant that features fresh fish flown in daily, a live raw oyster bar with up to eight different varieties of oysters on the half shell, innovative entrées, extensive wine list, creative house-made vodka-fruit infusions, local minibrews, eclectic local art, and friendly, knowledgeable staff all in a fun and funky atmosphere. Favorites include jumbo lump crab cakes with red pepper louie, fresh Alaskan king crab legs, filet mignon of ahi tuna, Alaskan halibut and New Zealand bluenose. Live Maine lobster, Florida stone crab claws, soft-shell crab and Maryland blue crab are all available in season. Come into Jax and get hooked. SRG Notes: Jax has some of the best fish in Boulder and is a great place for oysters. The main issue is that it is always very loud and frequently feels cramped due to its small size. Again, mention the SRG connection when making reservations. 16

17 Jill’s Address: 900 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: American, breakfast/brunch, and wine bar Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Jill’s is a modern bistro located in the St. Julien Hotel in Boulder, Colorado. The cuisine is eclectic and draws its inspiration from the western Mediterranean region. The kitchen is run by award- winning chef Jason Rogers, whose culinary pedigree has led him to work with such notables as Todd English and the James Beard Foundation. SRG Notes: Chef Daniel Cofrades is a regular at our workshops and loves to see us in his restaurant. Tell them you are with SRG when making the reservation and have the host tell Daniel that you are in the restaurant. He will normally make a special visit and/or send out a special dish. 17

18 John’s Restaurant Address: 2328 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: French, Italian, Spanish, American Cost: $$$$, $25+ per entrée Short Description: John’s is a charmingly small award-winning restaurant, that opened in John’s serves classic and contemporary dishes that blend French, Italian, Spanish, and American cuisines with skill and finesse. Dishes may appear on the menu inspired by influences of the American Southwest, Louisiana, Caribbean, and Asia. SRG Notes: John’s is a very small, intimate restaurant. Tell them that you are with SRG when making the reservation. They will do whatever it takes to fit your needs and always show wonderful gratitude for our business. They do not have a bar in the restaurant – all alcohol is table service. 18

19 Kasa Japanese Grill and Bar Address: 1468 Pearl Street, Suite 110, Boulder, CO Type of Food: Sushi, Asian, and Japanese Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Kasa Japanese Grill and Bar is a yakitoria, featuring specially prepared skewers of meats and vegetables. Kasa is proud to introduce old family recipes into their sauce repertoire. All of their sauces and dips for yakitori are made from scratch. They also feature prestigious quality meats and organic vegetables, as well as the use of an expensive charcoal called binchotan, highly prized and used by top chefs to emphasize the taste of the yakitori. SRG Notes: Very friendly owners and excellent sushi. 19

20 The Kitchen Address: 1039 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Italian, French, and Pizza Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Located in a beautiful historic building in downtown Boulder, the Kitchen brings a fresh perspective on ingredients, preparation, and guest comfort. Enjoy a relaxing neighborhood atmosphere complemented by superior food and exceptional service. SRG Notes: The Kitchen is a great example of Community Connected. The community table in the downstairs portion is the best bet for large groups, yet can be a small issue because it is a long rectangle and prevents the whole group from interacting. Monday nights are community nights and the large table is unavailable. I would not suggest trying to fit a group larger than six upstairs as it can be loud and the layout would be too crowded. They have a great wine list and great food. 20

21 L’Atelier Address: 1739 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: French Cost: $$$$, $15–30 per entrée Short Description: L’Atelier is the studio/workshop of chef Radek Cerny, where he and his staff offer excellence in food artistry and fine dining to their guests. The restaurant is small, only 50 seats, and the dining space was created by the noted Denver designer and architect Eric Mandil. SRG Notes: L’Atelier is a very formal eating experience. The room toward the front that is surrounded in red glass is the best bet for large parties. Chef Radek is a character, enjoy! 21

22 Laudisio Ristorante Italiano Address: th Street, Suite 1076, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Italian Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Laudisio Italian Restaurant is a Boulder tradition. Family owned and operated for 20 years, Laudisio uses the freshest local ingredients available to best utilize and reflect the beauty of the Boulder County gardens, waters, and farms. Our chefs create new bolder tastes for today’s palate, with innovative and exciting daily lunch and dinner features, including gluten-free menus. SRG Notes: Can easily hold large parties. The move to the 29 th Street Mall has caused this restaurant to lose some of its independent/unique feel. 22

23 Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant Address: th Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Vegetarian Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: Leaf Vegetarian Restaurant is wholly dedicated to creating a superb vegetarian dining experience in a tranquil, sophisticated environment. Leaf strives to use the finest organic, seasonal ingredients in providing a vegetarian global cuisine and health-conscious dining option for herbivores and omnivores alike. Leaf also provides a full bar highlighted by an enviro-friendly wine list, Boulder’s own organic Vodka 14 martinis, smoothies, and specialty loose teas and coffees. SRG Notes: Great for any dietary restrictions, and the food is so delicious that even your carnivorous clients will be happy. 23

24 Lucile’s Creole Café Address: th St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Creole, Cajun, BBQ Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: Lucile’s Creole Cafe serves an array of gourmet and delectable breakfast and lunch items. Our mouth-watering menu is simple but varied and our large portions are guaranteed to leave you satisfied. Come on in and enjoy a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice or a cup of Southern Louisiana-style chicory coffee. Try the beignets—New Orleans-style donuts served hot and sprinkled with powdered sugar. SRG Notes: Lucile’s is a Boulder favorite with lines out the door on the weekends. During weekdays it is significantly less cramped, but is still very crowded in the adorable little house. This is a restaurant that is worth a visit for the experience—unique and cute, but often crowded and loud. An excellent place to take a very Southern client! 24

25 Mateo Address: 1837 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Country French Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Dedicated to using organic, chemical-free, and genetically unaltered products whenever possible. Featuring a wonderful variety of hand-selected wines from around the world. SRG Notes: Mateo has had a variety of chefs in the past few years and has found one who really works in Kelly Kingsford. The dishes are wonderful and the wine list is great. The patio is nice during the summer and is tucked away. Service can sometimes be hit or miss. 25

26 The Med Address: 1002 Walnut, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Mediterranean Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: For more than fifteen years, the locally owned Med has been offering a menu that brims with Italian, Spanish, French, and Greek cuisine. The extensive menu boasts tapas, fresh salads and seafood, paella, pastas, grilled and organic specialties, wood-oven pizzas, and house-made desserts. Over 40 wines by the glass and lively tapas hour every day from 3:00 to 6:30. Open daily at 11 a.m. SRG Notes: A very busy and bustling restaurant with impressive popularity. It has grown significantly in the past years and can sometimes have a chain restaurant feel to it. The Med has a huge menu that will appeal to all—the food court of Boulder restaurants. It has won many awards and has one of the most extensive happy hours in Boulder (until 6:30). 26

27 Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery Address: 1535 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: American brew pub Cost: $, under $10 per entrée Short Description: The Mountain Sun first opened its doors in October The inspiration was the thriving pub and microbrew scene of Oregon. Their beers have won medals across the globe, including six gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, the world’s largest beer festival. SRG Notes: The Mountain Sun has a very casual and pub- like atmosphere. Their great beer would be a draw for easygoing clients who are into microbrews. There is often a crowd and long wait to get a table, live music, and a lot of noise. While waiting for a table, it can sometimes be uncomfortable as the entire crowd is cornered into a small space by the busy bar. The Mountain Sun does showcase the hippie, outdoorsy, beer-loving side of Boulder. The head brewer and owner are members of the Culinary Council and came to SRG to give a beer-making presentation last summer. 27

28 Oak at Fourteenth Address: 1400 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Modern American Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Melding elements of Colorado’s rustic backdrop with Boulder’s hip and contemporary dining scene, Oak at Fourteenth is a stylish neighborhood restaurant featuring local and seasonal new American cuisine in a friendly and professional atmosphere. Chef/owner Steven Redzikowski’s seasonally inspired menus are focused around Oak’s one-of-a-kind oak-fired oven and grill and offer selections from Colorado’s abundant agricultural landscape. Oak is proud to feature locally grown vegetables, locally sourced meats, sustainably raised seafood, and house-made pastas. Oak also offers a variety of creative hand-crafted cocktails and hand-selected artisan wines and beers that are the perfect addition to every element of our cuisine. SRG Notes: Oak had a wonderful opening with a great menu, great wine, and great cocktails. Unfortunately, they had a fire that closed them down on March 9. They should be reopening soon. Head bartender and owner Bryan Dayton (formerly head bartender at Frasca) and manager/owner Annie Polk are both members of our Culinary Council. STILL WAITING FOR IT TO REOPEN! 28

29 The Pinyon Address: 1710 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Modern American Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: The Pinyon offers a unique rendition of American cuisine with an innovative take on traditional cooking methods using fine local produce and respecting the legacy of our shared culinary heritage. We seek inspiration from Colorado and other states and regions to ensure reliable sources of top-quality producers and artisans, utilizing both common and more modest ingredients such as wild herbs, and foraged produce and mushrooms, in new and distinctive contexts. Any craft relies on the process as much as the end result, so making our own cheeses, breads, pickles, charcuterie, smoking our own meats, and making our preserves seasonally is an important aspect of who we are. SRG Notes: The Pinyon is a new restaurant to the Boulder scene and a great one to try out. There have been mixed reviews on food, but as they work out some of the kinks, it is constantly improving. Head chef Theo Adley is a member of our Culinary Council. 29

30 Pizzeria Basta Address: 3601 Arapahoe Ave. Boulder, Colorado Phone Number: Type of Food: Wood-fired pizza Cost: $$, $10–20 per entrée Short Description: They believe that simple, properly prepared food and a good bottle of wine are all you need for a satisfying meal. The wood-fire oven is their centerpiece. SRG Notes: Don’t let the location fool you! Might be tricky to find in the Peloton – it is in the parking area in the center of the development! Great pizza and the short ribs are amazing. Kelly Whitaker, the owner and head chef, is on the Culinary Council and has been to workshops. 30

31 Pizzeria Locale Address: 1730 Pearl St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Napolitano Pizzas Cost: $$, $10–20 per entrée Short Description: Pizzeria Locale is a contemporary pizzeria inspired by the traditional pizzerias of Napoli, Italy, from the creators of Frasca Food and Wine. The pizzeria is located downtown and features the first Stefano Ferrara oven in the state of Colorado, Italian wine on tap, and the first V.D.F. (read: incredibly fancy) prosciutto slicer in North America. SRG Notes: Pizzeria Locale is a fun and festive restaurant done with a Napoli flair. There have been mixed reviews on the pizza and there is no happy hour, but the wine list is impressive and the atmosphere is fun. Not great for large parties. 31

32 Q’s Restaurant Address: th St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Contemporary American Cost: $$$$, $25+ per entrée Short Description: Q’s Restaurant has been serving acclaimed contemporary American cuisine in its elegantly updated dining room in the historic Hotel Boulderado since Chef John Platt and his staff take pride in artfully preparing and attentively serving an array of innovative cuisine emphasizing seasonal ingredients and classic cooking techniques. Enjoy an elegant meal at Q’s or relax and enjoy the Corner Bar, our more casual venue, where happy-hour drink prices are offered all day and great late-night food comes straight from Q’s kitchen. SRG Notes: Q’s is a wonderful place for clients. The wine list is impressive and the food is always fantastic. For parties of 8–10 the main dining room is wonderful and for even larger parties, the “porch” is a perfect fit. Head chef and owner John Platt as well as the wine director Sarah Moore are on the Culinary Council. You can rent a private room and have Q’s service for meetings (great service and AV equipment available). Mention that you are with SRG when making reservations. 32

33 Radda Trattoria Address: 1265 Alpine Ave, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Italian and pizza Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: Radda Trattoria is a neighborhood restaurant inspired by the cuisine and culture of Tuscany, Italy. Having participated in the vendemmie [wine harvests], studies, and extensive travels, Radda is able to create an experience that is authentically and wonderfully Italian. Upon entering, you will be taken away with the passion for Italian food and wine. SRG Notes: Radda has wonderful hustle and bustle during the evenings, but can be very loud. Good food (although there have been mixed reviews), but be wary of noise levels. The patio has beautiful Flatirons views. The owner, Matthew Jansen, also owns Mateo and is a member of the Culinary Council. 33

34 Restaurant 4580 Address: 4580 Broadway St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Mediterranean and American Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Set in the trendy new area of Uptown Broadway, 4580 is a great mix of casual urban sophistication. Everyone who walks through our doors is our valued guest and many of you have become our valued friends. The restaurant and bar are surrounded by walls of windows on three sides, offering guests stunning views of the foothills and beyond. SRG Notes: Martin, the owner, is very friendly and outgoing. Mention that you are with SRG when making reservations. The private dining room is wonderful for any group, up to 30 people! 4580 has probably the best gluten-free options in Boulder. Martin can be quite chatty, but has wonderful intentions and will do whatever it takes to give you what you need. There have been some mixed reviews on the food and the service, but generally it is very good. Martin is on the Culinary Council, as is the bartender, Michael Crouch. 34

35 Salt Address: 1047 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Organic American cuisine, gastropub Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: The philosophy at Salt is simple: a belief that the best food travels the shortest distance from farm to table, that menus should change with the seasons, and that locally sourced ingredients, combined with European technique and innovative thinking, make for a truly remarkable experience. Chef Bradford Heap and his staff have made a commitment to source local, organic, and fresh ingredients whenever possible. The menu reflects this mindset: simple yet elegant and delicious. SRG Notes: Bradford is a member of the Culinary Council and is very personable. Evan Faber, the beverage director and manager, is also on the council. They have become known for their unique cocktail program (you pick ingredients from a list). For larger parties, ask to reserve the entire lounge area downstairs. If it is not available, we suggest looking into other restaurants as the top floor can be too loud and crowded for a large group. 35

36 Sherpa’s: Adventurers Restaurant and Bar Address: 825 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Authentic Tibetan, Nepalese, and Indian Cost: $, $8–15 per entrée Short Description: All food is true to authentic recipes and, in most cases, made to order, including fresh breads, sauces, and desserts. Sherpa’s features an authentic, heart-healthy, lowfat, charcoal- fired Tandoor clay oven. In addition to great food, feel free to take advantage of the Traveler’s Library and Lounge; peruse the displayed Sherpa history and pictures; explore our expedition, trekking and volunteer trip-booking opportunities; and look for our list of guest speakers. Every server is a Sherpa (a member of a traditionally Buddhist people of Tibetan descent living on the southern side of the Himalaya Mountains in Nepal and Sikkim). SRG Notes: This place offers a very unique and authentic experience. It is very casual and is best for more “creative/experiential” clients. Sit outside on the patio for the best experience. Sherpa’s is a great example of Cultural Curiosity. 36

37 Sushi Tora Address: th St, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Japanese, sushi Cost: $$$, $15–25 per entrée Short Description: Sushi is prepared by master chefs using only the freshest, highest-grade ingredients, including a unique array of fish flown in directly from Japan—in an open, comfortable atmosphere. The menu is further enhanced by a variety of unique Japanese entrées. SRG Notes: A traditional and very nice sushi spot. Only open for dinner. This is the best sushi in town and a sophisticated atmosphere. 37

38 Trattoria on Pearl Address: 1430 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: Italian and pizza Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: Come enjoy our beautiful dining room and large patio. Enjoy your favorite recipes and a whole new menu of modern Italian recipes with over 200 wines to choose from! SRG Notes: They will gladly do catering for SRG with nice flatware, serving utensils, etc for small to large groups. Chef Guillermo has presented on Italian food at SRG for workshops. 38

39 West End Tavern Address: 926 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO Phone Number: Type of Food: American Cost: $$, $10–15 per entrée Short Description: Executive chef Chris Blackwood has created some righteous home-style cuisine that features Boulder’s best burgers, steaks, chops, fish n’ chips, fantastic salads, and creative daily specials. The rooftop deck is open year-round and affords remarkable views of the Flatirons beneath 300 days of sunshine and our rooftop heaters in the winter. The antique wooden bar is home to more than 50 of the finest bourbons in the land and creative cocktails. SRG Notes: A great place for a burger, pub food, and beer. Also the best place for a bourbon or beer-loving client. A great example of Simple Refuge. Available for private parties on the outdoor patio (would not suggest trying to host a private party inside unless you can rent the entire upstairs bar area).
