    Steven Redzikowski of Oak at Fourteenth

    Steven Redzikowski of Oak At FourteenthSteven Redzikowski is the executive chef/co-owner of acclaimed Colorado restaurants, including OAK at Fourteenth (Boulder), Acorn (Denver), and Brider (Denver), where he oversees day-to-day operations, in addition to managing back-of-house operations and creating new menus.

    Redzikowski’s eclectic new-American style of cooking has been praised on both local and national levels. In 2014 and 2015, Steve was voted Food & Wine’s “People’s Best New Chef: Southwest,” and in 2015 and 2016, he was a James Beard semifinalist for “Best Chef: Southwest.”

    The Long Island native moved to Manhattan after completing culinary school and worked in some of the city’s most iconic kitchens including Le Cirque and Jean Georges before moving to Colorado to hone his skills at the award-winning Little Nell and the acclaimed Italian restaurant, Frasca. There, Redzikowski met future business partner, Bryan Dayton. In March 2010, Redzikowski reconnected with Dayton to open OAK at Fourteenth in Boulder. In 2015, OAK ranked #11 on 5280’s 25 Best Restaurants list.

    My Perfect Day in Boulder: 
    • Get lunch at T|aco downtown. They have some of the best tacos in town! Peter [Waters] is the owner and he really knows how to deliver great hospitality, even in such a casual setting — he makes everyone feel at home and welcome. Neighborhood wise, it’s one of my favorite spots to go — a great place to see people from the neighborhood.
    • Wander Pearl Street and check in on lunch service at my restaurant OAK at Fourteenth.
    • Stop in for an aperitivo at Pizzeria Locale and people-watch on the patio. They stay open a little bit later on Fridays and Saturdays — if I’m at OAK, I’ll try and leave a little earlier so I can catch the last call. They just added this new pizza, Vongole, with clams. It’s delicious!
