Frasca Food & Wine, the highly decorated Italian restaurant in Boulder, can now add an Outstanding Service award from the James Beard Foundation to its trophy shelf. On Monday night, the James Beard Foundation announced the winners at a ceremony in Chicago, where chefs, restaurateurs, and other hospitality world insiders gathered for what are considered by many to be the most prestigious awards in American hospitality.

Owner Bobby Stuckey opened Frasca Food & Wine with co-founder and chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson in August 2004. The pair are no strangers to JBF awards. Mackinnon-Patterson won the JBF for Best Chef: Southwest in 2008, the same year Stuckey was nominated by the James Beard Foundation for Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional. In 2010, 2011 and 2012, Frasca Food & Wine was nominated for Outstanding Wine Service, winning the award in 2013. While Stuckey worked for chef Thomas Keller at The French Laundry in Yountville, California, in 2000, he earned the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Wine Service award. The partners met while working at The French Laundry before opening Frasca.

Frasca competed against Brigtsen’s in New Orleans, Canlis in Seattle, Saison and Swan Oyster Depot in San Francisco, and Zingerman’s Roadhouse in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
