Boulder must tries?

A few restaurants that have knocked my socks of so far...

Leaf - it's an incredible restaurant that serves vegetarian dishes, but believe me you won't be making any sacrifices! On Pearl St.

Bombay Bistro - the best Indian food in town, on Walnut St.

Red Fish - awesome brewery and good food! Enjoyed both their fish tacos and butternut squash and chevre stuffed ravioli (right of Pearl St.)

Basically if you hit up Pearl St. you will have many fantastic options. Good luck!

I just moved to the area, but have already been trying some amazing things here. Are you looking for something high-end or more casual?

Looking for great local food producers in Boulder

I think a little one would love being out at the farm. The goats are so friendly and come right up to the fence and make their cute little baaah! You can even pet their heads through the fence. Definitely make the trip if you can find the time and bring your little one along. We were so glad we went.

I am reporting back about my visit to Haystack Goat Dairy. Thanks to everyone for the suggestion, we had such a good time! They took us all around the farm and let us meet the goats and then we went inside and learned more about their cheese-making process. There are some really dedicated cheese-makers on the farm and boy it shows with the quality of their cheeses. I am lucky to have a phenomenal goat dairy in NC, Goat Lady Dairy, but the cheeses we tried at Haystack where some of the best goat cheeses I've tried. I wrote a whole post about it on my blog, www.blog.foodzie.com if you'd like to read more details. I even took some video of our trip (the goats really liked to ham it up for the camera!) that's included in the post. If you are in the area, I would definitely recommend the tour. The people there are so friendly, the goats will make you smile and of course the cheese is delicious!

Greenville, SC Rec's

Ok - I know you aren't looking for pricey, but this restaurant might be worth changing your mind. Restaurant O in downtown Greenville is one of my very favorite restaurants. I still begin to drool when I think about the meal we had there. We had Kobe Beef, Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes (the real kind - I'm a Maryland native), Sweet Potato Gnocchi and a Chocolate Bombe dessert. The dessert was probably the most memorable. It started with a thin dark chocolate shell that was filled with a smooth mousse-like filling crafted of the perfect blend of dark and milk chocolates. The chocolate was topped with a sour cherry compote—which rounded out the decadent flavor with a tart, subtle sweetness. Soo sinfully good… Anytime we travel down south we make sure we take the route that passes through Greenville so we can eat at Restaurant O. Their menu is seasonal, but they do offer it online with prices so you can take a look to see if you feel like it's worth the splurge.

Must eat places in Atlanta

We did a "southern food tour" and popped into Atlanta for a day. I'd say the best cheap eats we had were the Cuban sandwiches at the Havana Sandwich Shop. They were incredible and the black bean soup was tasty too.

Will do! I'll be sure to take pictures of the cute little goats too. :)

Thanks to you both for the Haystack Mountain suggestion. We're actually arriving on Tuesday and needed to kill some time before we could check into our hotel. The farm tour is the perfect thing to do. I am really excited to meet the goats and try some of their fantastic cheese! Since your suggestion I read more about them and have only found great things. Thanks again!

Looking for great local food producers in Boulder

I am heading out to Boulder in a few weeks and I always like to check out local fare when I am in a new town. We are definitely going to check out some restaurants, but are there any great food producers in the area that I have to check out? Maybe a cheesemaker, chocolatier, or an artisanal preserve producer? I'd love to try anything. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks!
