Eater reported last week when Boulder Pearl Street restaurant PastaVino closed its doors unexpectedly. However, this restaurant space between Salt the Bistro and the Kitchen won't remain vacant for very long.
Awhile back, chef Bradford Heap submitted a Letter of Intent on the building, 5280 reports. The owner of Salt and Colterra, along with his wife Carol Vilate, plans to open a new sustainable seafood house with a large oyster and raw bar. Though the restaurant is currently unnamed, its doors will open in late February 2015. The menu will be completely GMO-free, will offer fish either wood-fired, steamed, or roasted, and will have a hefty vegetarian selection. The menu reflects how owner-chef Heap likes to eat, he says.
Once the doors open next year, that segment of Pearl Street will be home to four neighboring organic, farm-forward, and sustainable restaurants.
