Need I mention that this restaurant, bar and artisanal butchery (plus a farm) is the brainchild of Hosea Rosenberg, Boulder’s celeb chef for winning “Top Chef,” season 5? I thought not.
Since the last time we visited Blackbelly in warm weather, the south patio has been improved with roll-down plastic curtains in case of inclement weather (and maybe even heaters so it is usable in the spring or fall). My husband and I were the first there for happy hour, so we had a long table all to ourselves.
We were almost finished when the next people — three guys — came in. I like everything about this walled-in patio except for the occasional truck or motorcycle noise from Arapahoe Avenue. Nothing to be done about that.
Price check. At happy hour, oysters, $2 each (I neglected to take pictures); bites, $3; daily charcuterie, $5; also wine and beer specials.
