This is Old Major. We’re a tight-knit group of passionate folks doing things a little differently. We’re friends with our farmers and fishermen. We focus on heritage-raised meats from Colorado farms we know and respect. And our in-house, nose-to-tail butchery program makes the most of these quality meats. We even cure in-house—you’ll see the charcuterie room in the dining room, perfectly placed for extended ogling. We serve a limited selection of fine, sustainable seafood and we source ingredients from local farms. It’s an honest approach to doing food right.
