There was plenty of news coming out of Boulder this week, as three popular metro-area eateries opened new outposts in the city. Local brewery/restaurant Bru Handbuilt Ales & Eats took over the space next door for Heifer and the Hen, an upscale ice cream shop with creative, seasonal flavors. And Top Chef champ Hosea Rosenberg followed a similar path just across Arapahoe Avenue from Bru; he opened Blackbelly Butcher next to his flourishing Blackbelly restaurant. A Denver chef got in on the Boulder action, too; Biju Thomas opened another Biju's Little Curry Shop in the bustling Pearl Street Whole Foods Market.

So it was appropriate that the subject of Gretchen Kurtz's Chef & Tell this week was Matt Collier, who runs the Seeds Library Cafe inside the downtown Boulder Public Library — a totally Boulder concept.
