Local Favorites Of Pedestrian Shops Owner, Richard Polk
Last month we had our employees name a few of their favorite places to grab lunch within walking distance of our shops. This month, we’re keeping with our theme of great grub spots but we’ve asked the big enchilada – pun intended – to share some of his dining choices!
All of this month’s picks are within walking distance of the Pearl St. Shop as well as Richard’s home. If you find yourself in the area we encourage you to try them yourself and be sure to stop by and tell us what you think!
In no particular order, here is Richard’s top 5:
1. The Med Mediterranean Restaurant
The Med offers a fantastic mix of casual and exotic, Richard enjoys a leisurely dinner inspired by Mediterranean dishes, and prepared with a local twist. His favorite menu items include The Med Sampler Salad and the Chicken Sulla Griglia. http://www.themedboulder.com
The St. Julien Hotel & Spa is a world class business in many respects, and Jill’s Restaurant & Bistro is a go-to dinner destination for Richard. His favorite items are the Tableside Caesar made by Antoine and their famous Natural Chicken.
3. Brasserie Ten Ten
Brasserie Ten Ten offers a classy and sophisticated experience filled with delicious French preparations. Famous for their brunch specials and fantastic bakery, you can’t help but find something on the menu to enjoy. Richard’s recommendation is the Poulet en Brique paired with the rich French Onion Soup and glass of Malbec wine!
Grab a seat at the bar at the Boulder Chophouse & Tavern, and you’re in for a treat. Another restaurant putting the perfect local touch on classic favorites, they blend timeless dishes with exciting personal spin. Their Chicken Piccata has a special place in Richard’s heart accompanied by a baked potato and wedge salad.
5. Pasta Jay’s
Pasta Jay’s is famous for its atmosphere as much as its food, and Richard enjoys both! A fun and friendly place to enjoy unforgettable Italian style cuisine, this is definitely a place to try. Richard’s favorites include the Antipasto Salad and the Chicken Parmigiana made with gluten-free pasta. Stop by and try some for yourself, we’re willing to bet you’ll go home with a jar of their famous pasta sauce!
