How are you doing? I am headed into town this weekend and have been doing some research on the food scene. This was going to be just for me, but I went OCD and decided this might be good to publish.
I very much appreciate feedback, comments, criticisms, etc. This is by no means complete, but my first go around at trying to gauge the food scene in the area.
Best in area:
Frasca in Boulder
My Kitchen in Boulder
My Brothers Bar (JCB burger)

For Korean and Vietnamese, head to Aurora, for a great Hawaiian/Japanese market, go to Sakura Square, for Vietnamese and Chinese head to Federal and Alameda, go North on Federal for good Mexican. Greek and more Mexican are on East Colfax. There are a number of Indian, Middle Eastern and African restaurants and markets in Aurora as well.
Z Cuisine, Frasca, The Kitchen, Rioja, Duo, Fruition, TAG, Table 6, Root Down and ChoLon are all top-end restaurants, many with farm to table, local ingredients. (Fruition's chef actually has his own farm outside of town)
