We tried a new burger joint this weekend and it was FABULOUS! And not only is the food really, really good but everything you see on this tray is either edible or compostible. That's right! My ice tea cup…compostible…and also the silver ware (made from corn*)…the boxes and the straw! They only have a compost bin and a recycle bin for glass and plastic bottles – no landfill/trash bin! The oil they use for cooking their amazing fries is recycled as bio fuel and the interior is paneled with reclaimed urban timber. Now this is what we want – this is change we can believe in. Larkburger is a burger joint for the 21st Century – also offering killer tuna, turkey and veggie burgers. Move over Fonzie.
So far there are only 2 of these great burger wonders (I hope they franchise). So if you are skiing near Vail, or crossing over the continental divide on I-70, you can make a pit stop at the Larkburger in Edwards, Colorado or stop by the one in Boulder. It's worth the drive. In your Prius, of course.
