The 18-year home of Boulder’s Irish pub Conor O’Neill’s is getting swanky new life after sitting vacant since last April. By summer, Steakhouse No. 316 will open at 1922 13th Street. The fine dining establishment is based in Aspen along with sister restaurants The Monarch, CP Burger, and Wild Fig, all part of CP Restaurant Group.
Steakhouse No. 316 serves its prime cuts in skillets with toppings such as buttered lobster and sauces from chimichurri to blue cheese bone marrow butter. In Aspen, appetizers run from $14 for the soup of the day to $21 for jumbo lump crab cakes. A bar menu offers steak and eggs and mussels and frites, among other options.
Aspen’s Steakhouse No. 316 is set in an old miner’s cabin and designed in a film noir style, with red booths and drapes, ornate chandeliers, and black and gold accents. The new Boulder restaurant is currently being renovated by husband-and-wife owners Craig and Samantha Cordts-Pearce. Conor O’Neill’s opened on 13th Street in 1999 and lasted until 2017; before it, James Pub and Grill operated for two decades in the same location. Stay tuned for Steakhouse No. 316 opening details.
