August dinners confirmation

Post by KatieS »

I’m really excited to announce our restaurant line-up for our dinner gatherings in Boulder. Bear in mind that I’ve never been there and made the arrangements based upon AHS recommendations, member input, and travel reviews. My preference was to try to chose chef/owners of small restaurants who supported the AHS conference and whole organic, nutrient-rich foods. The Mediterranean doesn’t quite meet those requirements, but was a perfect pick for Dr. Gundry given the salad and seafood options and the location near the Pearl Street Mall. Trying to get any restaurant to accommodate a group for ~30 without deposits, room rentals, and contracts was a challenge… not to mention our eccentric dietary needs. I realize these choices may not be just perfect for everyone. Please feel free to pursue alternative options on our behalf.

Wed 8/10 6PM, Blooming Beets, 3303 30th Street, with fixed price menu of $38/ person. See below.
Thur 8/11 6PM, Zeal, 1710 Pearl Street, order off the menu.
Friday 8/12 6PM, The Mediterranean, 1002 Walnut Street, order off the menu.
Saturday 8/13, Fresh Thymes, 2500 30th St #101, order off the menu.

Katie, thank you, thank you, thank you!

The Mediterranean is my favorite restaurant in Boulder (I've never been to the other three but am certainly looking forward to dining at them). Locals call it "The Med." It's a noisy space, hard to hear if one has hearing issues, but the food is fabulous.
ApoE 4/4 - When I was in 7th grade, my fellow students in history class called me "The Brain" because I had such a memory for detail. I excelled at memorization and aced tests. This childhood memory helps me cope!

Special thanks as always to our founder, dear Julie who patiently heard the restaurant saga. Asia scoped the restaurants a few months ago and has eaten at both Fresh Thymes & Zeal, proclaiming that everyone should be able to order what they want. Relieved to hear The Med has a great review as well.

Several of the restaurants requested a count update early August, so please check that your name & number of guests are correct.

Well played, Katie!

The Med is noisy, but they have a wonderful Greek salad and great tapas menu if you're willing to stitch together a meal. The bacon-wrapped Medjool dates are worth blowing your saturated fat quota for the day. :D
