Mateo’s regulars include men in suits and women in sparkling tops twisting stemware between manicured fingers, transplants from the coasts who have a good appreciation for the Colorado lifestyle. This restaurant right on the bustling Pearl Street Mall in Boulder serves French bar fare that includes decadently creamy Brussels sprouts gratin, a croque-monsieur or bistro burger, and a monstrous plateau provençal of cured meats, cheeses, olives and nuts. But while the accent may be French, the emphasis here is definitely on local – local produce as well as local diners who use Mateo as a neighborhood hangout. During the summer, the secluded patio is a perfect place to share snacks and sparkling wine; in the winter, post up at the marble bar inside for big bowls of mussels.
