First Bite

Our Story

First Bite is an annual event highlighting the Boulder area dining scene. For one full week, more than 50 of the area’s top restaurants will offer a special three course $29 prix-fixe dinner menu to the community.

The week celebrates our exceptional dining scene and continues to bring its well-deserved reputation into the national spotlight. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the establishments that make Boulder County a premiere culinary destination.
