Eureka! No Crap on Tap in Former Daily Camera Location

We have all been waiting to see what public spaces are upcoming in the new building on the former Daily Camera site on west Pearl Street. We recently received a press release about a new restaurant, Eureka!, that will be opening September 5th.

It is not typical we rehash press releases here at Eat Drink Boulder but three items got our attention:

  • This is a very important location to downtown Boulder and a huge new building, so this restaurant’s opening is big news.
  • The email we received, titled No Crap on Tap, is pretty compelling.
  • We even like the Eat Drink American description of the restaurant, pretty similar to our site.

Of course, it is impossible to tell if Eureka! will work in Boulder; so many restaurants come and go. But the general premise of “great food accompanied by an all-American beverage program (local craft beers, small-batch whiskeys, classic cocktails), and events at an approachable price point” seems like a good fit for our town.

In terms of food, these menu items were highlighted in the press release:

  • Lollipop Corn Dogs made in house with Polish sausage, sweet corn batter, served with a spicy porter mustard
  • Slow Roasted Beet Salad with arugula, apple, walnuts, orange segments, asparagus, fennel, walnuts, and goat cheese finished with watermelon pop rocks
  • Fresno Fig Burger topped with a house-made fig marmalade, goat cheese, bacon, arugula, tomato, onion, and spicy porter mustard and served with signature handcut fries
  • Bone Marrow Burger topped with a bone marrow porcini butter, grilled onion, roasted tomato, and finished with a mustard aioli, also served with signature handcut fries
  • Fried Chicken Sliders with mashed potatoes, confetti slaw, and a reaper chili sauce served with signature handcut fries
  • Chocolate Torte made with dark chocolate, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and macadamia nuts

Eureka! is a Hawthorne, California-based chain with locations primarily in California, with two in Texas and one in Washington. In addition to Boulder, the restaurant group is opening in Boise, Idaho.
