The Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Fresh-from-the-earth ingredients. Check. Seasonal, sustainable menu. Check. Local growers and purveyors. Check. Wind-powered electricity. Check. The Kitchen, Boulder's beauty and the bistro, is as eco-friendly as it gets, but that's just a fragment of the fig, so to speak. Owner Hugo Matheson raises his own pigs and sheep on a nearby farm; customers can drop off their old wine corks for recycling; and the nifty beer list celebrates rare Belgium ales and local microbrews. Certified foodniks congregate downstairs to nosh from the chalkboard menu, which changes daily. The contemporary American foodstuffs have included braised veal ribs with harissa couscous; seared Hawaiian spearfish frolicking with fava beans; and summer squash risotto with toasted farro, lemon and chèvre. The Kitchen [Upstairs] is an inviting space in which to sip and sample from one of the state's most coveted wine lists.
