On April 15, 2004, The Kitchen opened as Boulder’s Community Bistro – a restaurant built by a community of craftsman, serving food & drink from a community of like-minded farmers, ranchers and purveyors for the sustainable enjoyment of the whole community – including staff. Being a Community Bistro also includes our commitment to environmentally-friendly practices, including composting, wind power, eco-friendly packaging and recycling used cooking oil to power Steve’s car (Steve is a Server at The Kitchen)
To this day, we believe in the power of good food and good drink to connect people as family, friends & a community, and The Kitchen remains committed to our mission of creating community through food. It is for this reason that we have been a big supporter of the Growe Foundation’s efforts to educate children about healthy eating and caring for the planet. Each of The Kitchen restaurants in Boulder donates a percent of sales to help Growe’s Garden to Table program connect kids to nutritious food.
