Venue serves American comfort food. It serves American comfort food prepared with French technique, with a little Italian influence, with a green-market sensibility. But that doesn't begin to convey the wonders coming from this kitchen. Under the command of Holly Hartnett, Venue elevates the notion of the "neighborhood restaurant" the way Fruition has on Sixth Avenue and Frasca has in Boulder -- taking the friendliness and openness of the classic cafe and melding it with the rigorous technique and beautiful presentations of the fine-dining restaurant.
