A friend from Hawaii visited and gave me a gift certificate to this "incredible" Boulder restaurant they discovered on the Pearl Street Mall (silly tourists!) Out of jaded curiosity I went, expecting your basic Boulder experience - decent

When even the Wall Street Journal is noting a Boulder restaurant, we locals pay attention as the restaurants come and go. This place is a keeper!!!

In a nutshell, pleased by the experience overall, some areas need minor adjustments however. The food was by far the strong point; very fresh flavor combinations, (even if a bit repetitive i.e. poultry and arugula both used on 3 plates out of 7 on the tasting menu), with beautiful presentations. Ambiance is cozy to chic, maybe a little too bright. Service was attentive, however our server clearly knew very little about our wines that were being paired with our courses since they were all "nice and ___" (insert another non-descript term about wine here). Also, the pairings were a bit odd with some of the varietals being completely overwhelmed by the cuisine. She was very friendly however, and that makes up for a lot of holes in her experience...kudos. I will try this place again and also recommend it.

We had the 7 curse tasting menu at the Black Cat and it ended up being 10 courses due to the chef sending out extra curses. For a more detailed review and photos please visit my blog at www.milehigheater.blogspot.c o m" The extra courses were a blessing and a curse as it was wonderful food from start to finish but well made and thought out however after 10 courses we could barely move at the end of it. The only real problem with the blakc cat is howclose the tables are together but the great food quickly let you forget that.

We followed a friend's recommendation to try the Black Cat because the food was the best in Boulder. We had the tasting menu and were dazzled. They take the tasting menu seriously and it was the best I've ever had. Service, Food, Atmosphere were spot on!

In case you're curious, there is no black cat slinking through the dining room of chef-owner Eric Skokan's sleek Boulder bistro. There is, however, an exhibition kitchen that showcases Skokan's culinary wizardry---a wizardry that…
