Specializing in Seasonal
Husband and wife duo welcome new Niwot restaurant with a focus on hyper-local ingredients
Taking cues from their stints at acclaimed Colorado restaurants Safta and Blackbelly, husband/wife duo Lisa and Patrick Balcom have opened a new farm-to-table spot called FAROW in Niwot’s Cottonwood Square that specializes in seasonal, hyper-local ingredients.
Most of their produce is sourced from Boulder County farms within a five-mile radius of the restaurant, resulting in an ever-changing menu of a dozen or so small plates meant to share with the entire table. The Balcoms, who don’t publish their menu online because of its constantly rotating nature, offer a variety of dishes from Longmont meat producer Buckner Family Ranch, along with a strong selection of vegetable-laden seasonal offerings.
Diners can indulge in a six-course tasting menu paired with a sommelier-supported wine program (overseen by Carmen Haywood, most recently of Tavernetta), or order à la carte off the regular menu (prices range from $12-$24). Open seven days for dinner.
