John Platt has owned and operated Q's Restaurant in Boulder's Hotel Boulderado for nearly two decades, which is about the same amount of time that Philip Shull's BookEnd Cafe occupied a Pearl Street Mall slot just a few blocks away.
Riffs will be a small-plates spot, with seasonal, international fare served in a social, bar-like setting. "I don't really expect to have an entrée on the menu," Platt told the Daily Camera. "We're trying really hard to keep everything on the menu under $15." And while that leaves exactly what will be on the menu rather vague, thanks to Riffs's Facebook page we know that the place has a spit -- and some sort of gyro in the works.
