Aurum, located at 811 Yampa St., offers “A new element in dining,” all in a fun, energetic atmosphere emphasizing food and service.

And its outdoor dining can’t be beat, with a fire-lined deck overlooking the Yampa River, where you can enjoy fine-dining to more casual fare (favorites include its crab cakes and chanterelle mushroom fondue).

A “local’s hour” menu augments all this, complete with Colorado liquors and beers and a specialty drink list.

“Our obsession is the guest experience,” owner Phil Armstrong said. “It’s not just the food or service, but the people who come through our doors.”
