Engage with First Bite

First Bite has moved far beyond the typical “Restaurant Week” model of attracting only one-time diners for an annual event. It has become a thread connecting diners to the restaurant community all year long. The First Bite diners are invested in who you are, what you’re serving and where the ingredients came from. These are the diners you want – and want to keep.

Through our premier cookbook, A Bite of Boulder, we became a widely followed voice in the Boulder Community. We are a resource for diners throughout the year, promoting exciting events and engaging opportunities for them to connect with you further. To further this evolution, First Bite has established three ways you can choose to engage with our network:

12 slots available • $850 ($2500+ value)

You may be a leader in hospitality, in sustainable practices, or have created the most thoughtful local beverage program. Diners want to hear your story. They want to learn more about you, your ethos, and to feel more deeply connected to your restaurant with each visit. As a Featured Restaurant, you’ll have exclusive access to multiple opportunities to tell your story in a curated and powerful way. Through photography, blog posts, podcasts, long-form articles and more, First Bite will give your restaurant the spotlight it deserves for an eager audience.
