When one door closes, another one opens even when it comes to your burger cravings in Boulder.
H Burger, the burger joint that occupied the space that formerly housed the Pinyon at 1710 Pearl Street in Boulder, turned the lights off and shuttered. The sign on the door directed guests to visit the sister restaurant, T|ACO. Among the circulated and unofficial reasons behind the closure are the difficulty of finding a dedicated manager and a cursed location that quickly put the last three eateries that occupied it in their grave.
On the happier side of the coin, Drakes Haus opens its doors today at 10:30 a.m. when it will start dishing out seven original wine-injected burgers from its space at 2900 Baseline Road. The Merlot-injected patties and the internationally-inspired combinations are the creation of chef and owner Kimber Hollar. Highlights include the South American, which boasts grilled slices of Chorizo sausage, cherry fennel goat cheese, and arugula and the (vegetarian) Greek, which combines a falafel patty with tzatziki sauce, tomato, feta cheese and lettuce.
Don't worry though, there are more than burgers on the menu and wine-less options are available for those seeking them out. The restaurant will serve lunch and dinner seven days a week.
