"I'm like Jeremiah Johnson with a terrine pan," says chef-owner Theo Adley, who opened the Pinyon in late 2010. And in the true spirit of locavorism, that meant Adley scoured Colorado's mountains for ingredient inspiration, eventually creating a board that marries those elements to comfort food. Housemade patés and sausages, housemade preserves, housemade cheeses and one hell of a fried chicken are among the menu offerings at the Pinyon. Adley gave his space a mountain treatment, too, constructing an open bar and an open dining room with muted hues, rough-hewn wood wainscoting and an open atmosphere that lets diners focus on both the food and their company.
