I believe that Boulder might be the top food destination in Colorado. I know that is a bold statement, but I think it's true. Here's why...

  • Bon Appetit magazine called Boulder America's Foodiest Town in 2010.
  • The Wall Street Journal called Boulder the "Best small city for great meals" in November 2009.
  • Bon Appetit wrote "Boulder is officially bursting at it foodie-seams" in June 2007.
  • The Denver Post wrote "Boulder still has the best food per square mile in the state" on August 20, 2008.
  • Individual restaurants and bars in Boulder also continue to rack up the accolades, including three Food & Wine mentions – 50 Best Bars in America in 2011 and 2012, America's Best New Bars in 2011, and the Top Sommeliers of 2012 – and Travel + Leisure's Best Italian Restaurants in the U.S. for 2012.
  • There are 19 breweries in town and five wineries - including the best self-guided wine tour in the state.
  • Boulder is also home to master sommeliers, a cooking school, the state's best farmers' market and most importantly, people who love to eat.

Foodies know that food is a great way to experience a community's distinct lifestyle. The suggestions in this guide give you a peek into living like a local in a way that is fresh and all about food. So, what are you waiting for? Visit Boulder and check out the chefs' suggestions. If you like them, I hope you'll stop in their restaurants to give them a full report. They'd like to hear from you!
