Aurum is a New Eatery on Yampa

Arum part of the changing face Steamboat’s Riverside restaurant row. As we strolled down Steamboat Springs’ Yampa Streeet, I kept spotting signs with new names where I expected familiar ones. Aurum Food & Wine at #811 was one. Previously the family-friendly Sweetwater Grill occupied the riverside space that it is now more urbane. Past the lively bar and door to the patio […]

Steamboat's LOW Serves High-Taste Food

Steamboat’s LOW Serves High-Taste Food

Low-country cooking in downtown Steamboat Springs. When I was in Steamboat Springs in January, I don’t believe that there was Southern anything in town other than a KFC, which in my world doesn’t count. Beyond my general distaste for chains, I admit that I don’t generally care for Southern food. What I’ve had in the past was […]

Denver Restaurant Week Consolidates

Ten days in winter set aside for affordable restaurant feasts. When Denver Restaurant Week was launched more than a decade ago, it was an epic, exhausting 17-day slog for restaurants. Foodies loved the many opportunities for bargain dinners, but a killer for those who prepared and served the meals. In deference to restaurateurs and chefs, this past […]

Colorado Olives? Sort Of....

Colorado Olives? Sort Of….

Real Greek olive stand at the Boulder farmers’ market a delicious surprise. Along with the expected seasonal apples, pears, pumpkins and other local produce, today’s Boulder County Farmers’ Market brought something of a surprise: a stand selling olives and olive oil. We’ve got lots of great produce, but there are no olive groves in this state. Olea Estates was […]
