Aged in the old country

The Cheese Course knows its Basque

By Josh Gross
The first thing you need to know about The Cheese Course is that it’s almost absurdly pleasant. Outside, the sun roasts the asphalt of the parking lot as the traffic roars through the intersection of Folsom and Arapahoe, but inside you are hit with a blast of Tommy Dorsey on the stereo, a whiff of gouda in the noseholes and the clean, simple and naturally-lit design of a European country market.

Won’t you be my neighbor?

The Kitchen Next Door

By Josh Gross
It’s comfort food that breaks neither the bank nor the belt, and that proves a point I’ve long argued for as a food writer: fine food doesn’t require fine dining.

Barbecue-topia at KT’s Hickory Pit

By Josh Gross
There are four KT’s locations. The East Boulder spot I visited is a converted house on 74th and Arapahoe, decorated with Elvis memorabilia, including a copy of the only cookbook this reporter owns hanging on the wall, Are You Hungry Tonight?: Elvis’s Favorite Recipes.

Experience Mediterranean gigantism at its tastiest

By Josh Gross
Hummus and dolmas and shawarmas, oh my; there’s a reason the kids hit this place after hitting the bong.

Leenie’s Southern Cafe is a bit more cafe than Southern

Where to eat comfortable food wearing comfortable pants

By Josh Gross
Leenie’s leans more toward being a Southern-influenced diner than it does a full-blown Southern cafe.

Give me home fries or give me death

The North Boulder Cafe is some fine truck stop chic

By Josh Gross
The North Boulder Cafe is about as close to a lonely roadside diner as one is likely to find in city limits.

Fresh, local and organic

By Josh Gross
Zeal is what Boulder has come to expect from sleek, Pearl Street eateries: A clean, modern design with high ceilings, plenty of light and colors as natural and comforting as the food.
