MICHELIN Guide Restaurants in Boulder

Boulder's love of adventuring in the outdoors and refueling with nourishing, deliciously prepared meals — in a fortuitous location surrounded by over 1,000 working farms — has resulted in one of the nation's most exciting dining destinations. It's attracted chefs who are able to express their culinary creativity with a bounty of quality ingredients and discerning diners who know a satisfying meal when they taste one.

Now, for the first time, the MICHELIN Guide has taken note and has announced its Boulder selections. Congratulations to these Boulder restaurants for their inclusion in the MICHELIN Guide! Watch a recording of the ceremony.

About the MICHELIN Guide

The MICHELIN Guide was established in 1900 by the Michelin brothers to inspire motorists to travel around France by providing useful trip-planning information including hotel and restaurant recommendations. Today, the MICHELIN Guide is valued as an esteemed resource for culinary recommendations in more than 40 worldwide destinations thanks in part to its independent and proven methodology. 

The MICHELIN Guide selection of Colorado restaurants follows Michelin’s century-old review criteria:

  1. Quality of products
  2. Harmony of flavors
  3. Mastery of cooking techniques
  4. Voice and personality of the chef as reflected in the cuisine
  5. Consistency between each visit and throughout the menu as a whole. 

Beyond the star ratings, MICHELIN Guide also bestows Bib Gourmand, Recommended and Green Star distinctions.
