Food News | Dec. 2021 – Jan. 2022



Some of the biggest news happening right now is related to restaurant and hospitality businesses impacted by the Marshall Fire. While it’s hard to know the definitive status of many eateries, what’s more certain are the ranks of restaurants offering help. Downtown Boulder Partnership compiled a list of all those they know of that are feeding first responders and those displaced. At publication, it included more than 25 entities.

• The end of an old year and beginning of a new one is bringing a handful of new food options to the area. Based on 6th and Main St. in Longmont, Main Street Eatery by FancyAF concepts is offering breakfast, sandwiches, soup and salads through community-based catering and a mobile restaurant.

• Since they announced their purchase of the former Endo Brewing spot in Lafayette Marketplace prior to 2020, we’ve been excitedly waiting for Westbound & Down Brewing Company to open. At the end of the year, they welcomed their first customers with 15 beers on tap, indoor/outdoor seating for up to 100, and a menu of share plates, and pizza from Chef Casey Taylor.

• At the same time, Ghost Box Pizza is preparing to move their Detroit-style pizza production from Acreage at Stem Ciders to nearby S. Public Road. They’ll be offering both take out and dine-in options.

Orchard Town Center welcomed two new dining spots with one more in the works: Elevated Q BBQ and Windfall Brewing Company, which bills itself as a “brewery, restaurant, and arcade, have opened while Laws Chophouse is set to open by the end of Q1 2022.

In Superior, Angry Horse Cafe has opened as a bar and restaurant that offers plenty to do while you wait for your food or spend time with drinks and friends. On premises are seven golf simulators and 3 outdoor pickleball courts. Meanwhile, in Boulder at the 29th Street shopping Plaza, Meta is serving plant-based burgers to hungry shoppers.

• Finally, last month, a Boulder community favorite, Cured, was sold. Owners Coral and Will Frischkorn handed it off to Jason Zuliani, who has plenty of experience with wine and cheese as the owner of Dedalus in Burlington, Vermont. We’re looking forward to see what he’ll bring to the location.
