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 😉 is our daily sandwiches, hand-crafted using our incredible cheeses, meats, favorite dips and spreads (From Esplette Aioli to Peach Jalapeño Jam) as well as local seasonal vegetables from our friends with farms nearby, all carefully layered onto 1/3 of a freshly baked french 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 ☺️

Here is a sneak peek at our menu…

Sandwiches: We always offer our four favorite sandwiches, day in and day out, because, we’ll, customers have been know to mutiny without them. From The Bird (turkey galentine, smoked cheddar, fresh apples, roast tomato chutney, aioli and greens) to the Giro (prosciutto di parma, mozzarella, olive oil, balsamic and arugula) to the Spicy Frenchman (brie, butter, french ham and peach jalapeño jam) to the  The Roma (olive tapenade, roast tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil and fresh greens), we’ve got you covered. 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.

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

San Marzano Creamy Tomato, Black Bean and Pork, Chicken Shitake and Onion, Pinto Bean and Mole.

Salads: Green salads, grain salads, pasta salads and tuna! A little lighter, brighter, but no less delicious.

The Bright Winter Salad: mizuna, pickled watermelon radish, shaved fennel, pomegranate seeds, essex feta, sesame crunch, orange-honey vinaigrette

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.

Weekly Dinners

Each week Cured’s chefs cook up two amazing meals so that you don’t have to.  Every Thursday we roast up an organic chicken served with a side of duck fat mashed potatoes hot out of the oven  at 5:30. Every Friday our Culinary Wizard, Lentine Alexis, schemes up a tasting menu to rival anything you’ll find out on the town. She packs-up the entire meal, so it’s ready for you to pick-up at 5:30, on your way home from work.

For all of our take-out meals, reservations are suggested!
