Try this week: Two burgers and two beers @ The North End at 4580

Plus, discount wine finds at Boulder County restaurants


Simply put, The North End at 4580 makes one of the best burgers in Boulder County (in addition to a number of refined new American entrees). As part of its takeout menu, you can order two deluxe burgers — a half-pound patty with hot grilled onions, butter lettuce, tomato and garlic aioli on a fresh brioche bun — with fries and two beers poured from the tap into handy single-serve to-go cups. If you’re looking to dive into those entrees, though, the $80 dinner-for-two option allows you to order one app (maybe cauliflower “wings,” bacon-wrapped dates or quinoa fritters), two entrees (we suggest the braised bison short ribs and farmers vegetable risotta), dessert (we definitely suggest the flourless chocolate torte) and a bottle of wine.

Two burgers and two beers, $33. The North End at 4580. 4580 Broadway, Boulder, 303-448-1500,
