Thomas d'Aquin, formally of Axios Estiatorio (winner of our Best Greek Restaurant in the Best of Denver 2012), is Volta's executive chef; he promises Chef Surprise Tastings, featuring three- and six-course meals with wine pairings, every night at 5:30 p.m. The regular menu will feature such sophisticated, Greek-influenced dishes as rabbit sausage gnocchi, grilled octopus and grilled Colorado lamb chops.

Volta's owners are Jon and Eleni Deering, a husband-and-wife team. Eleni is Greek and Jon has been part of the Boulder restaurant scene for years, working everywhere from Chautauqua Dining Hall to The Black Cat.

Volta will be open daily for brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., happy hour from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
