Winter Truffle Season!

Order Your Fresh Truffle Today!!

Fresh truffles are one of our favorite things to share here at Cured, being one of the few places in the state where you can order a fresh truffle on Wednesday, have it flown in from France or Italy by Friday, and bring it home to shave and enjoy over the weekend. 2018 is shaping up to be an abundant and incredible truffle season! We source our truffles through Gourmet Attitude, the best truffle dealer in the biz located in NYC. They fly in fresh truffles (Black from France, White from Italy) every week and FedEx them straight to us for your (and our!) gustatory enjoyment. So, what is the difference between a White and Black Truffle? That’s a good question. White truffles are far more fragrant and flavorful and are so aromatic they are almost always shaved raw on top of dishes (que the quintessential white glove shaving scene). Black truffles are a bit heartier, and are benefited by a light cooking which helps to coax the maximum flavor out of them. They are often used with red meat, poultry, sauces, pates and other more robust flavored dishes. The flavor and aroma of black truffles is stronger and earthier than the delicate flavor of the white truffle; think masculine vs feminine.  

 

Orders must be placed by Wednesday at noon and truffles will arrive and be ready to pick up on Friday afternoon. Call the shop (720.389.8096 x1) to order!

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, Rebecca Sosvielle, 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!
