Jill's Restaurant & Bistro

It may be located inside the luxurious building that houses the St Julien Hotel + Spa, but Jill's Restaurant does much more than cater to business travelers on expense accounts and vacationers with cash to blow. The cozy bar and dining room attract plenty of locals at lunch and dinner, and Jill's is particularly popular with Boulderites during weekend brunch, when it offers a sweeping, delightful buffet of breakfast foods. That goes for the daily happy hour as well, when the rooms fill with post-work professionals sipping cocktails and wine and nibbling on small-plate appetizers. In the summer, weekly live-music acts entertain large crowds on the hotel's back patio -- and Jill's is happy to serve here, too.
