DO Chef Panel: Who Do You Love to Cook For?

Cooking is love made visible

The month of love is upon us. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we turned to our chefs and asked them the simple question, “Who do you love to cook for?” Let the brownie points commence!

“So many of my cooking skills have come from growing up in my mom’s kitchen. I spent lots of time watching her cook for the family seven nights a week. For someone without any formal training, she was amazing in the kitchen—still is actually. I love cooking for her now because she appreciates it so much. She asks a million questions and is always interested in learning new techniques, just as I did when I watched her in my younger years. Even now, she still manages to teach me a trick or two that she has learned throughout the years.”

—Justin Adrian, Roadhouse Hospitality Group

Eagle will usher in the holiday season this weekend with its traditional Christmas on Broadway nighttime parade on Saturday. This year marks the celebration’s 27th anniversary.

“The community will come together for the parade starting at 5:30 p.m. on Broadway and then follow the parade to Eagle Town Park to see the live nativity, tell Santa their Christmas wishes, warm up by the bonfire while sipping on wassail and enjoy the sounds of the Harris and Lee Band until 8 p.m.,” said Michelle Friedman, of the Eagle Chamber of Commerce, the event organizer.

For kids headed to the festivities, here is a vital piece of information: Youngsters can nab a free bag of candy beginning at 5 p.m. at the Peppermint Station located next to the parade announcer stage downtown. Because of safety concerns, no candy will be distributed along the parade route.

The Eagle Community United Methodist Women will be selling their famed chicken noodle soup from a stand outside the Eagle Pharmacy to warm up parade watchers. The soup sale will begin at 5 p.m.
As a prelude to Christmas on Broadway, the second-annual WassailFest sponsored by Circle-A Auto Repair and the Dusty Boot Roadhouse begins mid-week.

Businesses located throughout Eagle will be participating, and an event kickoff is planned at the newly renovated Dusty Boot Roadhouse today, starting at 5:30 p.m. Rally goers will get their first taste of wassail, pick up their 12 Sips of Wassail cards, get a token for a free drink and check out the Dusty Boot remodel. Wassailers will hit the streets Thursday through Saturday to try different wassail recipes at participating business and get their cards punched. Wassailers will turn in their cards at the Dusty Boot Roadhouse by 4 p.m. Saturday to cast their vote for Eagle’s 2016 Wassail Meister. Everyone who completes a 12 Sips card can claim a commemorative mug and a free burger token from Dusty Boot Roadhouse.

EAGLE — As the seasons start to transition into winter, Dusty Boot Roadhouse in Eagle will be undergoing its own transition. On Monday, the doors will reopen to a redesigned restaurant interior and menu.

“We are excited to present an even better experience than before,” said John Shipp, owner of Dusty Boot Roadhouse and Roadhouse Hospitality Group. “Every modification we made was to tailor the restaurant to the Eagle community that has been so welcoming.”

Opened in 2008 as The Dusty Boot, the restaurant will now be known as Dusty Boot Roadhouse. The furniture, as well as the look and feel of the restaurant, has been updated to match a new, modern design. The new menu will feature new burgers, appetizers, entrées and drinks that have become popular at other Roadhouse Hospitality Group Restaurants. Many of the local restaurant’s popular entrees and drinks and its long-established, friendly vibe will remain.

Roadhouse Boulder Depot | DiningOut Denver Boulder

Posted by & filed under News.

By Jeffrey Steen, Managing Editor
DiningOut, Denver & Boulder

The Boulder Depot is nothing new. In fact, the building dates back to 1890 when it functioned as a train station at 14th and Canyon. But by the mid-1950s, train transportation had taken a back seat to the illustrious automobile, rendering this particular depot increasingly less useful. By 1973, the building was slated for demolition. That’s when one of Boulder’s founding families, the Jaycees, came to the rescue; by orchestrating community fundraising, they were able to purchase the building and move it to the PowWow Rodeo Grounds east of downtown. For decades, it functioned as an event space and concession stand, until the Roadhouse Hospitality Group proprietors, John and Dan Shipp, purchased it, moved it to its current digs at Pearl and 30th, and lovingly renovated the space to reflect both the depot’s history and its new life as a forward-thinking, Boulder-centric eatery.
Design

While relatively small, The Boulder Depot space is impressively dynamic. The main level features nooks and crannies, dotted with local artists’ craftwork—like the iconic caged lights dangling above—and restored elements from the original depot, including sprawling walls of stone and, in a cheeky nod to the past, railroad tie tops on the bar’s beer taps. The small but mighty kitchen, meanwhile, tucks into the far corner, churning out thin-crust flatbreads, salads, apps, and burgers galore.

Downstairs, The Depot offers a bit of a surprise—a private dining space for 60 or so. With its own bar and an alcove for game-watching, its the perfect spot for a range of occasions. They’ve even been known to host anniversary parties for weddings that took place at The Depot in the “PowWow Era.” All along the walls on both levels, guests will see remembrances of the days of yore; from newspaper clippings of the Jaycees renovation in the ’70s to the more recent remodel, these moments in time anchor the history of The Depot that has never been—and never will be—forgotten.

Beer at Roadhouse Boulder Depot

Beer at Roadhouse Boulder Depot

Roadhouse Boulder Depot recently opened, and last weekend I stopped in to have some lunch and check it out. I was very excited to visit the restaurant for multiple reasons. First, the historical aspect of it–the building itself used to serve as the Boulder Train Depot, from 1890-1957. Secondly, there were several items on the menu that piqued my interest. And finally, the beer list looked fantastic!

Roadhouse Boulder Depot

It’s been more than fifty years since the last train departed from the original Boulder Railroad Depot, but thanks to a Colorado-based restaurant company with Boulder roots, the hustle and bustle of a busy depot has once returned to the historic stone building.

It’s a story literally written on the walls of the Roadhouse Boulder Depot restaurant—the former train depot’s current inhabitant. It begins on 14th Street and Canyon Boulevard (then Water Street), where the Union Pacific Railroad began construction on the depot using locally-sourced stone from Boulder County quarries. The project cost a cool $16,000 and was the talk of the town by many Boulder residents who gushed over the building’s excellent stonework designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style of architecture popular in the United States in the late 1800s.

The Boulder Railroad Depot would go on to serve as the city’s only depot until 1957, at which time it was out with the old and in with a new depot built just east of town. But instead of tearing the beautiful building down, it would continue on as a hub for transportation in the city, converting from a train depot to a bus terminal operated by the Denver-Boulder Bus Company. For sixteen years, the original train depot would operate as a revolving door for people departing from and entering the city of Boulder, until 1973, when the last travelers passed through the building, and the depot shuttered its doors.

Today, the train depot is the centerpiece of the city’s up-and-coming Boulder Junction neighborhood, a 160-acre redevelopment area that is home to a handful of contemporary affordable apartment complexes, a newly built Hyatt hotel, and fittingly—an underground RTD bus station. The building retains many elements of its historical past, but also sports a modern new look, thanks to the folks at the Roadhouse Hospitality Group—the company behind Colorado restaurants like the Wazee Lounge & Supper Club, Kickapoo Tavern, and several Dusty Boot restaurants.

Founded by three brothers and former University of Colorado Boulder alums, the old train depot now goes by the Roadhouse Boulder Depot, a name that reflects the tasteful combination of past and present that defines the building today. The walls of the restaurant are filled with black and white photographs depicting the depot’s journey through time. Steel panels and railroad tracks are subtly used as decorative touches in the dining room, community seating area, and bar of the restaurant, which officially celebrated its grand opening last week. An ode to the Boulder Jaycees (a chapter of the United States Junior Chamber) is painted on the wall above the restaurant’s open kitchen, paying homage to the organization credited with saving the depot from demolition in the early 1970s. With the help of the Historic Boulder, the Jaycees were able to orchestrate the relocation of the depot to it’s current address at 2366 Junction Pl.

On the menu at the Roadhouse Boulder Depot, diners will find a hearty selection of elevated pub fare featuring a blend of Southwestern, Asian, and All-American cuisines. Gluten-free diners can select menu items from a large section of the restaurant’s menu that is solely dedicated to gluten-free dishes. Locally produced craft beers, wines, and other spirits can be found on the drink menu, which can be sipped on the large outdoor patio which will open once the Boulder weather warms up.

Ready to head out? Check out their guide to getting there, including a handy embedded map. It’s an easy find, too. Just go past the Whole Foods Parking lot (yeah, you know it well) and keep heading east towards Foothills and bam. Bon appetit!

The Roadhouse Hospitality Group—the operators behind well-known Colorado restaurants like the Kickapoo Tavern in Keystone, the Wazee Lounge & Supper Club, and the chain of Dusty Boot restaurants found all over the state—is bringing their blend of contemporary and casual dining to Boulder’s up-and-coming Boulder Junction neighborhood. Housed in the city’s iconic 126 year-old train depot, the Roadhouse Boulder Depot {2366 Junction Place, Boulder; 303.443.2167} is a tasteful shrine to the building’s past combined with urban elements that breathe new life into its old stone walls.

Black and white photographs showcasing the depot’s colorful history adorn the walls in the restaurant’s upstairs community area, bar, dining room, and the “private car” club room on the lower level that is a throwback to the heyday of train travel and can be reserved for parties of up to 80 people. Diners will find lunch and dinner menus filled with elevated pub fare like juicy burgers, an assortment of flatbread pizzas stacked with fresh ingredients, hearty entrées like a Short Rib dinner, Colorado Striped Bass, Barbecue Shrimp Tacos, and much more. Along with a large variety of healthy items like a Kale and Quinoa salad, the Roadhouse Boulder Depot also offers a menu section completely devoted to gluten-free items.

“We wanted to create an approachable menu filled with homemade dishes made from scratch in our kitchen,” says John Shipp, who along with brothers Dan and Mike founded the Roadhouse Hospitality Group. Alumni of the University of Colorado at Boulder, the Shipps’ pride and love for the city can be found all over the restaurant, but is especially evident in a large community booth done up in the colors of their alma mater, complete with a large TV perfect for watching the hometown sports teams. The Roadhouse Boulder Depot will also feature a selection of locally made craft beers and spirits that can be enjoyed on the restaurant’s large outdoor patio during the warm weather months.

The Roadhouse Boulder Depot is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and has plans to incorporate a brunch menu in the near future.
