Christian Saber, a native of Buenos Aires and now chef-owner of Rincon Argentino in Boulder, was working in Breckenridge when he realized he'd fallen in love with more than Colorado powder: He met his future wife on the slopes, and when he later moved with her to her home town of Boulder, he realized there was a dearth of Argentine food there. And so in 2012, he opened a fast-casual spot that specializes in empanadas -- very good empanadas. "I came up with the empanadas because they're simple to take out and carry around, to go hiking with," he explains. "I believe in my business and the concept, but honestly I didn't think Boulder was going to love it so much." Oh, but Boulder does, and so does anyone else who finds their way to Rincon Argentino, which also offers sandwiches, salads, specials and a variety of sweets.
