It is hard to imagine a better place than Boulder for a fast casual eatery like LYFE Kitchen. The small chained focused on food that tastes great and is good for your body opened its 13th location yesterday at 1600 Pearl Street, in a space that had been home to the Gondolier restaurant since 2007.
The venue was transformed into a modern eatery with bright tones of orange and natural woods, comfortable seating, and a variety of herbs and greens decorating the interior.
The menu is inspired by famous chefs Art Smith, Tal Ronnen and Jeremy Bringardner. Flavor is strong, layered, and deep. Many of the dishes featured, from the popular Unfried Chicken to the Fish Tacos or Barramundi Noodle Bowl have a kick of spice and heat to them and all of them contain fewer than 600 calories and 1,000 mg of sodium. Vegan, gluten-free, celiac diets are well-accommodated here.￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
The new Boulder restaurant uses ingredients sourced locally including bison from High Plains, chicken from Boulder Natural Meats, coffee from award-winning Coda Coffee, fresh herbs from Rocky Mountain Herbs, and select to-go packaging from Eco-Products.
LYFE Kitchen will also serve local beer from Prost, Avery, Great Divide and Ska. The restaurant will also feature a mural of the Armstrong Orchard & Vineyard in Palisade painted by local photographer and publisher, John Fielder.
LYFE Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, and also serves snacks and special beverages, including great wines and local beer. Bonus: LYFE Kitchen provides catering for events.
