The Kitchen for Exploring Food (with photos)

Thanks to all for suggested The Kitchen for catering. I haven't decided to go with them to cater my 100 person wedding, but I did drop by for lunch and LOVE it.

Just a mile or so west of Oldtown Pasadena on Colorado, The Kitchen is everything Oldtown is not: there's plenty of parking, there are no long lines, and the food is FANTASTIC.

It's not fancy looking, and by visuals alone you might think "What's the difference between this and any salad bar?" But the difference is in the taste. Good, seasonal food, properly prepared, and seasoned just enough to highlight natural flavors without overpowering anything. Each and every salad I sampled tasted different from each other, which is so rare these days.

I encourage everyone to stop by for lunch if you're wondering where to eat in Oldtown. The only drawbacks are that there are only two or three tables because it's not a sit down restaurant, and I'm not sure what variety of drinks they might or might not have. I think The Kitchen's cold salad and vegetables are as good or--dare I say--better than Clementine's.

The staff was very nice and encouraged me to go in for a consultation, which I plan to if I ever find a great location that will let me use their catering for my wedding!
