A Denver Home Companion | basta boulder

chef kelly whitaker and his crew at basta up in boulder are putting out some amazing food from their wood fire oven. this is certainly one of jp’s and my favorite restaurants. if you’re looking for some thoughtfully prepared and perfectly seasoned food that just makes you feel so so good and well-fed, next time you’re in boulder make this your spot for dinner. we had a feast the last time we were there — a little bit of everything. my go-to is the burrata and at least one of their pizzas. and then whatever chef whitaker recommends. ramona can be picky. she never turns down food here. i’m no food critic or writer so hopefully the photos can speak for themselves:

basta is open every day, 5:00 until 10:00. they serve a friday lunch from 11:30 until 2:30. chef whitaker is opening up a place down the street from the populist at 25th and larimer and we cannot wait to have him join the neighborhood.

    Damn, I miss the great food that urban places draw – you’ve got me drooling, especially with that ice cream shot! We have some notable food in this valley, but I do miss the variety of the big city!

    Yum! We went to Basta on a PowerDriver rec a while back and it’s our go-to Boulder spot now. Can’t wait to have them as Larimer St neighbors! Now somebody get me some smoked butter.

    My sister took us to Basta and we were so impressed. It was my first time, and worth every minute we were there. The food was incredible!
