|A Day in the Life of Josh Olsen
Partner & Kitchen Manager
at The Squeaky Bean
There's no doubt about it , Boulder is home to tech's most ambitious entrepreneurs. And, though the same may be said about Silicon Valley, what sets Boulder techies apart are their passion for great food and their delicate palates. It appears Boulderites have gusto for great-tasting cuisine and cocktails, which is surely the reason why delicious local restaurants abound. This combination of visionary minds and culinary arts stretches far outside our cities boundaries as well. So, I set foot on a quest into downtown Denver and discovered an innovative kitchen which opens its doors this month!
The Squeaky Bean is soon to be serving Denver's most progressive cuisine and kitchen manager and partner, Josh Olsen, accepted the challenge to help me in my quest to find a different kind of restaurant. Little did I know that my journey would begin in the rural farmlands outside Denver's metropolis. When we arrived on the farm, Olsen explained that the lands produce the ingredients for The Squeaky Bean's menu of exquisite entrees. They grow more than fifteen types of crops including squash, tomatoes, chili, sunflowers, and... chrysanthemums? Yes. Chrysanthemums are one of the traditional cut flowers that will be served as key components on your plate at the Bean. Olsen promises that his ingredients will engage your five senses during the dining experience and shared that one dish is "a salad that will literally be served in a square flower box. It will include edible flowers and super-good spinach. Together they'll make one very aromatic, colorful, and fun salad that will opaque your typical greens with cucumber."
