Five Culinary Superstars Introduce Emmerson, New Restaurant Opening in Boulder, Colorado on August 24

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A new restaurant called Emmerson will open in the heart of Boulder on August 24, featuring an exciting and extraordinarily talented team of hospitality industry veterans from New York, Los Angeles and Boulder.

Emmerson, an all-day neo bistro, will feature a menu aimed to reignite diners' appreciation for grains through beautifully baked breads and pastries, homemade porridges and pastas and cocktails made with grain-based spirits. Chefs will express their personalities through their food and diners will experience fine dining masquerading as a neighborhood restaurant.

Emmerson is the brainchild of five collective owners, including:

    --  Michael Gibney, Executive Chef/Partner - Best-selling author of
        "Sous-Chef: 24 Hours on the Line" (named one of the ten best non-fiction
        books of the year by TIME magazine) and veteran of numerous New York
        kitchens from Tavern on the Green to 10 Downing.
    --  Jeb Breakell, Executive Pasty Chef/Partner - CIA-trained pastry chef
        with experience at two-Michelin-starred Blanca and Atera, and
        three-Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park and Thomas Keller's seminal
        Per Se.
    --  Tre Gerbitz, General Manager - Well-known and beloved front-of-house
        master in Boulder's restaurant scene through the Walnut Restaurant Group
        where he was a fixture at local institutions like The Med and Brasserie
        Ten Ten.
    --  Ben Foote, Beverage Director and Assistant General Manager - Colorado
        native and local beverage guru who was most recently the bar manager at
        Chef Hosea Rosenberg's Blackbelly following several years working in
        some of New York's hottest bars including Atera and Extra Fancy.
    --  Ben Kaplan, Restaurateur - One of Colorado's top restaurant
        entrepreneurs, Ben has been an investor and/or partner in restaurants
        and destinations including Oak at Fourteenth, The Source, The Source
        Hotel, and Brider. Ben spent the past two years personally selecting the
        partners for this exciting opening.

Another vital member of the Emmerson team is Nancy Kwon, who left L.A. to relocate to Boulder and become the bar manager and cocktail curator for the new restaurant. Credited with introducing the craft cocktail movement to Los Angeles' Koreatown, Nancy won LA Weekly's "Best Bartender" award in 2015 and ranked in the top five in Craft Cocktails America's list of the "Top 50 American Bartenders" in 2016.

"Each of us is committed to this project in a way that truly feels like family," said Kaplan. "It's the perfect marriage of fresh, outside perspective from our chefs who moved here from New York to be a part of Emmerson, and home-grown talent from our two local hospitality pros from Boulder's thriving and close-knit restaurant culture."

The approachable space of Emmerson at 1600 Pearl Street consists of 5,160 square feet and 125 seats, as well as a 290 square foot outdoor patio that seats 25 for al fresco drinking and dining. The restaurant will open at 7:00 a.m. daily and feature late-night dining options, daily happy hours and brunch on Sundays. For more information, visit www.EmmersonRestaurant.com.
