Photos: Behind the scenes at the newly expanded Frasca Food & Wine
We knew when Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan MacKinnon-Patterson, the pair of owners behind Boulder's Frasca Food & Wine, closed their restaurant down for six weeks to expand and renovate, that the result would be stunning. But nothing could have prepared us for the upgraded Friulano eatery we encountered last night.
The crew managed to preserve the feel of the place while streamlining systems to help service run more efficiently. And then, of course, there's the kitchen, an immaculate shrine, and a big enhancement from the hallway that once hosted four chefs practically cooking on top of each other.
Behold, a pictorial summary of Frasca's first night back in business.
Glassware is at a premium in this wine mecca, where it was once polished behind the bar. In the expansion, a polishing room was added, along with a private table, where diners can converse with the staff during dinner.
