Making food from scratch typically requires advance preparation, adherence to a recipe, and your third and final genie wish. Save the third wish for more wishes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of small plates, sandwiches, and entrees at The Boulder Grill, located on the ground floor of the downtown Holiday Inn.
The Boulder Grill's menu appeases appetites of all sizes with shareable small dishes, a roster of sandwiches, and ample entrees assembled from scratch. Start meals on a heroic note by freeing macadamia-stuffed dates from bacon clutches ($8) or witness chicken and andouille sausage forge an alliance atop a crispy dais with the Cajun barbecued flatbread pizza ($8). Sandwiches and burgers ($8–$10) arrive at tables flanked by an entourage of fries or a soup or salad sidekick. Alternatively, tongues can paint themselves red with the rojo sliced sirloin steak poised on sweet-corn tamale cakes ($14) or delve into a textural treasure chest free of inedible doubloons and bank statements with the potato-crusted salmon, which comes pan-seared and arrayed in mustard cream ($18).
As visitors defeat hunger fork by fork, they can admire the dining room's sleek black seating that offsets edgy green and orange walls. Guests can also calm rumbling stomachs on The Boulder Grill's outdoor patio, where passing lightning bugs reenact the climactic moments of Flashdance.
