Tastings: Natural Epicurean

06/19/2014 Tagged as: Dining
Wholesome, natural, organic, and healthy are the four pillars that Natural Epicurean was founded on.  The word "epicurean" comes from the teachings of Greek philosopher Epicurus, who taught the highest level of happiness could be achieved through modesty, minimalism, and knowledge.  An array of freshly made food and beverage will bring guests and locals to the highest level of dining pleasure, though the flavors are far from modest!
 

The commitment to natural products starts from the bottom up.  Sustainable hardwood floors, lighting from post consumer products, and tiles made of recycled glass give the dining room a light and airy feeling.  Sitting down for lunch, you'll find glasses crafted from reused wine bottles, and china made from recycled stoneware.  Or sit on the patio for a classic view of Cheyenne Mountain, while enjoying the blooming flowers and trickling fountain.

This relaxing atmosphere is the perfect place to enjoy the real star of Natural Epicurean, the food!  Start your meal with a thirst quenching cold pressed juice, or a Beet Bloody Mary, all freshly made to order from locally sourced produce.

Healthy doesn't have to equal hungry!  Natural Epicurean does offer salads and appetizers perfect for a light lunch or dinner.  But after a long day on property, we recognize you might need some protein to refuel.  The menu also includes a hearty Grass Fed Colorado Bison burger and Grilled Atlantic Swordfish, as well as the option to add Steelhead Salmon or Colorado Chicken to any salad.  For our vegetarian friends, the Anasazi Bean Burger, or Italian Vegetable Club are sure to keep you satisfied.

After your meal, you better leave some room for dessert!  Fresh fruit offers natural sweetness to options like the Baked Apricot Tart, or Compressed Melon Salad.  These sweet treats are the perfect ending to your wholesome experience, and healthy to boot.

Natural Epicurean is also proud to partner with the following organizations:  Colorado Proud, Healthy Dining Finder, Arkansas Valley Organic Growers, and Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.  Our seafood comes from sources that do not harm the environment, and our meats and produce are locally grown; meaning our food is good for you and the earth.

The Broadmoor's head baker, Johann Willar creates freshly baked bread, pita, and pastries each morning for Natural Epicurean using ancient grains.  In contrast to commercially bleached flour, these ancient grains offer better health benefits and taste!  In addition to breads on the lunch and dinner menu, stop by Natural Epicurean for breakfast to try a whole wheat croissant or a spinach and kale danish.
