We have had the pleasure of dining at The Kitchen on several occasions, but it had been over a year since our last visit... until last night. The Kitchen's menu can be intimidating if your aren't a foodie or professional chef, but the staff is more than happy to answer any of your questions. Their bar menu is extensive with craft brews, custom cocktails, and lots of wine. I tried the ginger sazerac which was very delicious... I only wish I had a cigar to pair it with. My husband tried the house special, or Geoff's pour, called the Ski Guatemala which was cleverly served hot in a tea cup, perfect for thawing out from the brutal winter nights.
I have a tendency to order the richest meal on the menu and so I ordered the cassoulet made with duck and sausage, so yummy! My favorite aspect of The Kitchen is their efforts to source all the food locally, and give back to Boulder with special events for fund raising and 20% of the community hour (happy hour) profits going towards building community gardens at schools.
Located right on Pear street, The Kitchen is a must visit if you are in town. The only downfall is the expense of eating here...

As locals, the Kitchen is our "go to" restaurant because the food is always excellent. It's the place we take our visiting family, friends and work colleagues because it's got a lovely but unpretentious atmosphere. If you're looking for great food, you can't go wrong here.

There are a lot of restaurant choices in Boulder center and they come in all types of cuisiane. The main hook of this restaurant is that they serve fresh local produce and as organic as possible. That said they still have to provide some bang for the buck. Everything is ala carte. We dicided to split a salad ($12) and it amounted to about two to three bites each. The monk fish was salty and a very small portion with a high price. The duck dish was ok but again a small portion for a high price. the atmosphere is early brick remodel. The wine list was above average and the drinks were repectable.

I ate here on a work trip. The food was very good and the wine list even better. I ordered a few appetizers and those were all stellar. I was also impressed by their wines by the glass. They carry Musar by the glass, which was a treat. The ambience is modern rustic and the theme is very much "farm to table". The restaurant was pretty full for a Wednesday, had a perfect noise level. The attire was everything from jeans to business wear.
