Under the Sun is hiring, plans to open next month in south Boulder

The Mountain Sun Pub & Breweries group is getting ready to open its newest eatery and taphouse, Under the Sun, at 627-A South Broadway in the former Giovanni's space. That's right below the Southern Sun Pub & Brewery in south Boulder.

The restaurant will feature a lower-priced flatbread menu and other small plates; Top Chef Season Five competitor Melissa Harrison, formerly of Boulder, is consulting on the menu. Under the Sun will also serve 21 Mountain Sun-made beers, with eight to ten guest taps featuring beers from other local breweries. The dining room will have seating for about a hundred; there will also be patio seating.

The restaurant is slated to open in mid-February. In the meantime, Under the Sun is hiring "hospitalitarians," according to the following Facebook post:
