Located on Pearl Street in Boulder, Wild Standard opened in September of 2015 and provides a casual yet stylish atmosphere, ideal for families, friendly get-togethers and large groups. Owned by renowned chef and farm-to-table trailblazer, Bradford Heap, from SALT and Colterra the restaurant focuses on providing guests with seasonal, sustainable, humanely-raised food with flavors that showcase the best of what the season has to offer.
Chef Heap has always held an importance in health and wellness. His family was a driving force in his quest to source and serve food that is both enjoyable and good for the body. Wild Standard’s menu brings these standards to its guests, serving the season’s best ingredients in innovative and delightful ways.
Wild Standard takes pride in responsibly sourcing all seafood from purveyors who support organic ingredients and sustainable practices. Seafood selections in the raw oyster bar, menu samplers, and fish-centric entrees meet the strict standards of the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council). Wild Standard is the only restaurant in Boulder to hold the MSC certification. Chef Heap uses influence from his time in Europe to inspire Wild Standard’s menu. He procures and prepares the freshest possible ingredients of the region to develop new American cuisine that showcases the honest flavor of the ingredients. He believes that food tastes best when it travels the shortest distance.
