We recently popped by the new north-central Boulder home of Moe’s — it’s next to the Dairy Queen on 28th Street. It has yet to open, though when we called a while back they said they’d open in March. Well, our taxes are done, so it must be mid-April, but it’s looking pretty close to finished, with some of the tile apparently setting or drying or something. Half of the menus were chalked up and ready to go as of last weekend.
The other one we’re curious about is Tangerine. That’s what Radix Bistro (in Willow Springs Shopping Center, next to Arugula) is being converted into, according to this building permit listed in the Camera:
PMT2011-00560;2777 Iris Ave.; $90,000; Willow Springs; Center Management Group LLC; Tenant remodel for conversion of former Radix Bistro to Tangerine with shared flex space with Arugula. Existing kitchen to remain. Includes electrical, mechanical and plumbing.
Tangerine has both a normal website (albeit very limited at this very moment) and a Facebook page, which tells us they’re hoping to open by June 1. Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
Tangerine is Boulder’s premier breakfast & lunch spot combining the quality of fresh seasonal ingredients with a playful and unpretentious atmosphere that’s sure to start your day off right. Chef owner Alec Schuler of Arugula Ristorante and Phil Armstrong of Hush Denver work together to bring you the next evolution in brunch eateries. We strive to provide the highest level of service and cuisine while creating an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming to all. Tangerine works together with local farmers and producers to bring you the freshest items available from right here in Colorado ranging from 100% local organic eggs to 2011 roaster of the year Conscious Coffees.
I do love breakfast, whether it’s a solid bagel (Moe’s calls everything bagels “Italian” bagels — weird or just me?) or a sit-down organicstravaganza. We’re looking forward to adding both spots to our north-central Boulder restaurants listing.
