I love the Kitchen Next Door “Community Pub” for its down to earth atmosphere and reasonable prices for gourmet comfort food. It’s part of The Kitchen family of restaurants started in Boulder by well known entrepreneur Kimball Musk. Its fancier cousin The Kitchen is just two blocks away up 16th Street, and is also well worth a visit.
Hours: 11am to close
Both indoors and outdoors are great options at the Kichen Next Door. Most of the outdoor seating faces the fountains in the plaza, which are fun to watch. And indoors the bar is always crowded and the large vintage sign over it is atmospheric. The Kitchen is big into “community” and both indoor and out they have several shared community tables.
Everything we have had there has been good, but the kale chips are a particular favorite.
