After 3 hours of driving in the mountains, I was famished and we stopped in Boulder to check out the city. We came to the little downtown area with rows of shops and restaurants and settled on The Kitchen [Next Door] for lunch. This place seemed to be a little more casual and was not as crowded as others. The menu was limited, featuring a few salads and sandwiches. The daily special was Crispy Calamari ($9.95), so I decided to try that. I was expecting something different, but received a plate full of fried calamari rings and a side of marinara sauce. Pretty basic. Keith ordered their Fish "N" Chips ($12.95), and received three nice pieces of thick white fish over a plate of smashed garlic fingerling potatoes. I tasted a piece of his fish and it was different than cod or halibut. It had a unique flavor and I forgot to ask the server what type of fish it was. The garlic smashers were pretty garlicky and a nice twist to regular fries. Overall, I welcome the use of organic and fresh farm ingredients, but found our meals to be pretty average.
