When you’re looking for the ideal night out with friends, colleagues, or that special someone, the pinnacle of the Boulder restaurant scene is waiting. Frasca is a neighborhood bistro offering food and beverages inspired by the Friuli region of Italy and is the brainchild of Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey and Chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson.
They’ve been noted in nearly every publication possible in the world culinary scene, from Bon Appetit to Condé Nast Traveler and Gourmet to Wine Spectator. If that’s not enough to encourage your inner foodie to call for a reservation, you should grab a taste of the inspiration behind Frasca’s exceptional and ever-changing menu. It’s rare you’ll dine here and ever have two identical menus set in front of you. The culinary genius behind each dining experience wants to ensure that you return for a completely new adventure each and every time.
When you dine at Frasca, you’ll need to make a reservation (walk-in dining isn’t recommended, as the restaurant is generally booked solid most every night of the week). They do, however, always reserve a few tables for walk-in guests, so you might be lucky enough to snag one. For guidelines about making a reservation, please see Frasca’s reservations page. In general, however, Frasca offers two seatings — between 5:30-6:15PM and then 8-10:30PM.
The menu at Frasca is always a prix fix menu with set fare for the evening. This Quattro Piatti or four-course menu will guide you through your entire dining experience and is priced at $78 per person. Gluten free? Don’t hesitate to ask. The waitstaff is well-versed in making recommendations to those with food allergies or dietary restrictions. You can also take advantage of Frasca’s Monday Wine Dinners, where a set menu is offered with exclusive wine pairing for the evening, all for the rate of $50 per person.
The atmosphere is sophisticated and the ideal location for entertaining and commemorating a special occasion. You probably want to leave your jeans and fleece at home and step up the wardrobe just a bit for what’s bound to be an unforgettable culinary experience!
