Boulderites: Colterra or Black Cat for anniversary dinner?

We've been meaning to get to both of these places in the Boulder area for a while now, and thought that one might be a good place to go for our 5-year anniversary. Which one would you pick and why?

  1. IMO, you can't go wrong with either. Black Cat is smaller and more intimate, if that matters. We went there for our anniversary. We made our reservation on OpenTable and other requests or comments or whatever they have, we indicated that it was our anniversary dinner. They poured us some complimentary bubbly and wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on the rim of our dessert plate. I'm going to try to attach the photo. Sorry if the colors are weird, but the pic was taken w/out flash. The dessert was actually very lovely.

      Well, I TRIED to attach an image, but it didn't "stick." Maybe it's too big. I'll go my grave w/out remembering the difference between a bit and a byte, never mind the bigger units of computer measure.

        I've never heard of Colterra, where is it and what kind of food? Never been to either, so can't advise, sorry!

          Bradford Heap is the chef/owner of Colterra. Formerly the chef/partner at Full Moon Grille and Chautauqua Dining Hall. Colterra is in Niwot and the food is Mediterranean with Bradford's unique mark added. Great place and worth a try.
