Old Major, the restaurant opened in February by chef Justin Brunson, received a positive review from Westword. "People have gone hog-crazy," says restaurant critic Gretchen Kurtz of the LoHi restaurant. Kurtz noted a few things about the restaurant: the decor is simple, leaving room for the food to be the star, the dishes are intricate but the lingo remains straight-forward on the menu, and the goal seems to be to introduce guests to foods they have never considered trying before.
The critic enjoyed the hearty nose-to-tail plate and the grilled octopus with fried green tomatoes and marcona-almond purée, but suggested guests skip the somewhat ultra-fibrous grilled-romaine-and-kale Caesar. What else? Don't plan a short meal here: "the kitchen is inexplicably slow, turning dinners that should last one and a half hours into nearly three-hour affairs," Kurtz remarked.
Q's, the restaurant in the Boulderado Hotel gets high brunch marks for brunch from the Daily Camera. Restaurant critic Liz Moskow praises the attentive waitstaff and the vacation-like atmosphere that the eatery fosters for each of its guests. The zucchini bread French toast and the Bloody Mary are not to be missed.
