Local Table Tours.

Local Table Tours was founded by fellow Edible Front Range blogger, Megan Bucholz, and she graciously invited me to go on a tour.  We weren’t able to connect with a tour date until a few weeks ago.  What an adventure it was for me to drive up to Boulder that afternoon! I usually leave Colorado Springs in order to make good time and I thought I was doing so well until I got stuck in traffic behind an accident on I-25.  Luckily, I had punched in Megan’s cell phone number before I left, so I quickly dialed her when I wasn’t moving.  Long story short, I drove like a bat out of hell (oops, did I just type that? ha!) and even though I missed most of the first restaurant… I still made it!

Oak at Fourteenth was the first stop and as I arrived breathlessly after parking my car, I saw a group of people sitting at the bar and I walked over.  After brief introductions, Megan informed me that they saved some food for me to try.

I thought that was really nice and I tried my best not to inhale the fried pickle with green goddess aïoli, spicy braised meatball, and wood oven roasted cauliflower with caper vinaigrette.  I also had a sip of one of their cocktails, but unfortunately I can’t remember what it was called or what was in it.  I do remember that my palate was pleased, though!

Then walked to Tahona Tequila Bistro and I was happy to see that they had a bottle of tequila waiting for us.  After we sat down, they also served us tiny margaritas… nice!

Not long after, they served us appetizer portions of three items from the menu.  The chef came out to explain what each of the items were.  We got to sample a carne asada taco, spicy shrimp enchilada – if I’m not mistaken, and pork green chile.

Our next stop was Oliv You & Me for an olive oil tasting.  This was a cool little stop because I had never been here before and I love olive oil.  I enjoyed tasting the differences between the three that we sampled, they were all so different but I liked them all.

Owner Patti Scott was very good at describing the olive oils and she was just overall great to talk to.

Afterwards, we went next door to Savory Spice Shop which is one of my favorite stores.  Luckily, there is also one in Colorado Springs so I’m very familiar with it.  I get just about all of my spices and some salts here.

Our next to last stop was to Q’s (we actually ate at The Corner Bar, though) located in the historic Hotel Boulderado.  We got to sample a glass of a Colorado red wine along with bite sized portions of seared duck breast over herbed spätzle and cherry sauce… baked oysters (I hope I don’t have that wrong!), and pear salad with fregola pasta, escarole, prosciutto, blue cheese, spiced walnuts, and sherry vinaigrette.

This was the first time I had been here, so it was nice to walk through the hotel after we ate.

Our last stop was dessert at Tee & Cakes.  We got to sample mini cupcakes and since I’ve been here before, I still dig the salted caramel.

This is a nice walking food tour if you would like to experience different restaurants in Boulder.  The agenda changes constantly, so you probably won’t go to the same restaurants twice.  During the summer, Megan offers farmers’ market tours as well so that should not be missed!

For more information on how you can book a tour, please visit the Local Table Tours website.

On a side note, I apologize to the restaurants featured if I got the menus wrong.  I was probably enjoying myself too much.  Thanks again, Megan, for a lovely time!

  19. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
