Colterra Restaurant - Boulder

The Colterra Restaurant is owned by Bradford Heap who is also the chef.  Bradford is very passionate about working with local farmer, ranchers, and purveyors. There is a spirit combined with his vision of the French and Italian training frame. Bradford also has an on site vegetable garden which ensures he keeps everything as fresh as possible.

The Journey of the Colterra Restaurant is a happy story. It begins with Bradford's love and beauty of preparing food. He has traveled all over the United States which includes the French countryside and the rustic Italian dwellings and then back to Colorado's majestic Rocky Mountains. Bradford describes Colterra as the foundation behind his vision to the art of food and health. Bradford attended the Culinary institute in New York in his twenties which was part of his dream. He studied at LiOrangerie in Los Angeles and trained in San Francisco at la Folie. Bradford felt that his training and studying gave him the courage and experience he needed to set out and make his dream a reality, which was to open his own restaurant now known as Colterra.
