Atticus Celebrates Its First Birthday Tonight

Today you can help Atticus celebrate one year of serving a more grown-up menu to the bar-food-saturated University of Denver neighborhood, or head to Boulder to see how Pizzeria Locale is going beyond the pie as the kitchen there cooks up traditional southern Italian cooking "al forno." Keep reading for more in today's tasty events.

Flour and Fire, the dinner series at the original Pizzeria Locale in Boulder, is designed to showcase Pizzeria Locale's pizza oven as the restaurant expands beyond pizza to explore traditional southern Italian cooking "al forno" with the head pizzaiolo Matt Perez. The dinner starting at 7:30 p.m. is $45 per person; for more information, call the pizzeria at 303-442-3003.

In honor of year one for Atticus, chef Matt Mine will be offering a Chef's Tasting Menu all week; the lineup will change daily. And tonight, the restaurant will hold its official Anniversary Dinner featuring four courses for $60, with an optional $30 wine pairing. Dinner begins at 7 p.m. with a meet-and-greet at 6 p.m.; call Atticus at 720-459-8273 for more information.
