Lunch at Cured

Making lunch the most important meal of the day…every single day!


While you may know us for our cheese and charcuterie, we are strong believers that lunch is the most important meal of the day and are consistently dreaming and scheming on how to make it even more divine. Our bread and butter (sorry the pun ūüėČ is our daily sandwiches, hand-crafted using our incredible cheeses, meats, our favorite dips and spreads (From Esplette Aioli to Peach Jalape√Īo Jam) as well as local seasonal vegetables from our friends with farms nearby, all carefully layered onto 1/3 of a freshly baked baguette. We craft fresh salads and soups, and we love making custom cheese and charcuterie platters to satisfy any event and appetite, from lunch for a group of friends to a pre-dinner snack to a neighbored block party¬†‚ėļÔłŹ All are available in store, and for quick pickup to take away.

Here is a sneak peek at our menu…

Sandwiches: We always offer our four favorite sandwiches, day in and day out, because, well, customers have been know to mutiny without them…. They are:

  • The Bird (turkey galentine, smoked cheddar, fresh apples, roast tomato chutney, aioli and greens)
  • The Giro (prosciutto di parma, mozzarella, olive oil, balsamic and arugula)
  • The Spicy Frenchman (brie, butter, french ham and peach jalape√Īo jam)
  • The Roma (olive tapenade, roast tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil and fresh greens)

Add to this a rotating selection of seasonal delights (in sandwich form), some featuring house roast beef, others with chevre, prosciutto and fig jam, and some with pastrami, calabrese, capicola or french ham. Oh yeah, and don’t forget about our daily grilled cheese…always rotating and always gooey, melting and delicious. ¬†Check our social media feeds (or scroll to the bottom of this page!) after we open up each day to see what specials we’re offering.

Soups: all freshly crafted by our team using hand made stock and as many local vegetables as we can find. A few of our current favorites (they are constantly rotating!):

  • Creamy San Marzano Tomato, a Cured staple
  • Black Bean and Pork
  • Chicken Shitake and Onion
  • Pinto Bean and Mole.

Cheesemonger’s Choice Plates: Whether for in store enjoyment or packed in a handy, picnic-friendly box to-go, our team can always craft you a customized cheese and charcuterie plate to enjoy at any hour of the day. ¬†We price them by weight and can curate the snack of your dreams, whatever those dreams may be on any given day. ¬†Just ask any of our mongers behind the cheese counter to help! Give us a few minutes and your day will be that much more delicious.

Our Wine Shop


Cured Wines, the smallest liquor store in the state, is our guilty little passion project.  In just 206 square feet, we highlight a collection of interesting wines from all around the world, and a largely local lineup of beers and spirits that showcase what Colorado does so well.  Changing with the season and based upon availability, we focus on small producers, bottles you won’t find everywhere else, and most of all, wines that deliver value at any price.

While not exclusively so, most of the wines on our shelves are organic, biodynamic, or naturally produced, and made by people who use their hands in every part of the winemaking process.  We organize our wine selection by weight and style rather than grape varietal, and always have an extremely knowledgeable and passionate sommelier on hand, aiming to deliver an experience more akin to that of your favorite restaurant than the mega wine mart.  In a time of big, bigger and biggest, we’re the micro to their macro, and value the relationships we build with our customers, guiding them from bottle to bottle over time.  We love nothing more than helping pair our selections with with cheese and charcuterie from up front, any of our meals, catering selections, or whatever you might be enjoying for dinner that evening.

Whether you’re on the hunt for a crushable weekend patio sipper or a true special occasion bottle, we are excited to help you find something delicious, exciting, and new.  In the end, as our friend Richard Betts likes to say, wine is a grocery, not a luxury.  Come visit us and find a bottle that truly makes you smile.
