Boulder and North Central Colorado Restaurants



Black Cat

Black Cat Review

Is this Boulder's most famous bistro? No, but the intimate eatery's thoughtfully prepared food and diverse winelist help put it right up there with Boulder's elite restaurants. The Black Cat really is the whole package, starting at the nearby organic farm where Eric Skokan tends his crops and animals by day. After the sun goes down, Skokan dons his chef hat in the Black Cat's kitchen, working with the vegetables, meats, seasonings, and herbs that he specifically raised. The menu changes daily, but it always begins with ingredients brought from just a little down the road—it might include duck breast and a duck confit strudel, served with currents braised in wine, or pork that was raised on walnuts and is now being served with nutmeg dumplings. If you indulge with the tasting menu ($59), also splurge for the intuitive wine pairings ($44). They're more than worth it.
