The hardest part about dining out with a group (besides splitting the check at the end)? Finding a spot that everyone agrees on. From dietary restrictions to downright picky eaters, it can be tough to come to a consensus. Enter: food halls. Inspired by European markets, food halls house multiple restaurants in one communal space — meaning you can please every palate all in one place. Boulder has two food halls, with another in the works!
Check out one of Boulder’s food halls the next time you’re going out to eat, whether it’s date night for two, a lunch outing with the family or an evening with friends.
Rosetta Hall is a luxe food hall (think plush velvet seating, a refined navy-and-white color palette, marble countertops, elegant lighting and Le Creuset cookware on display at nearly every food counter) with easy-on-the-wallet menu options and a community atmosphere. The three-story culinary hotspot in downtown Boulder features a coffee shop, two bars and 10 restaurant concepts, including casual French cuisine, Asian street food, West African dishes and an oyster raw bar. The hall acts as something of a restaurant incubator, hand-selecting chefs with great promise who don't have their own brick-and-mortar eatery yet. View all of the restaurant menus and pricing on the Rosetta Hall website.
You’ll find inviting seating on every level, from long tables for groups to intimate nooks for two to rooftop cabanas with unbelievable views of the Flatirons. Rosetta Hall also bills itself as a dance hall, so keep an eye on their events calendar for upcoming dance nights!
One of Denver’s wildly popular food halls, Avanti Food & Beverage, is coming to Boulder. The food hall is slated to open in the 13,000-square-foot former Cheesecake Factory right on Pearl Street in the spring of 2020. The new location will boast a rooftop deck, two bars, six restaurant concepts and a coffee and pastry shop.
Rayback Collective is a permanent indoor/outdoor "foodpark" that combines the stability and community of a food hall with the variety and spontaneity of a food truck roundup. Because Boulderites love to be outside so much, this nontraditional food hall centers its activities around an outdoor space, where a variety of food trucks park and serve customers daily. You'll find a dog-friendly yard and patio area, picnic tables, colorful murals, a firepit and lawn games. Check the rotating food truck schedule online.
If you get thirsty, flag down a Rayback staffer to order a drink or head inside to the bar or coffee shop. There’s more seating inside, including comfy armchairs and couches, along with a stage sponsored by Avery Brewing Co., where you can catch live music from local acts. Check the Rayback website for weekly concert updates.
