At Anthem, you don't have to go far for great food.

Drive to Denver for date night or creative cuisine? Not when you live at Anthem. Because with Lafayette and Louisville just down the road, we have fantastic eateries fit for foodies, right near the community. Here’s a bite-sized list (with not a chain restaurant on it) to get you started:

Community was created by locals, for locals. Where you can gather to enjoy local brews, craft cocktails, elevated “Colorado comfort food” and more. The restaurant’s recipes are inspired by local farms, the health conscious and Colorado’s melting pot of cultures, lifestyles and histories.

Situated on a 12-acre hilltop less than a mile west of Anthem, you’ll find Acreage Ciderhouse & Eatery. Come for a relaxed date night, or bring the family, because there’s something for everyone here. With a dozen or so cider varieties (including a non-alcoholic version for the kids), and a critically acclaimed menu with wood-fired dishes, ethically raised meats, and organic local produce, every palate will leave happy. Come hungry. And be prepared to stay. The outdoor area is exceptional, with firepits, a bandshell, cornhole and majestic mountain views. Have a dog? They’re welcome too (outside only, of course).

/pôr/ wine house offers an intimate place to enjoy a date night drink and shareable plates. With a large bottle selection and more than a dozen wines on tap, plus a large selection of craft beer and cocktails, this might become your new favorite place to gather with friends. Just how good is their wine list? It won a Best of Boulder award, so we’d say very.

Kevin Taylor (a dominant name on the Denver restaurant scene) has done it again. And then again—with two restaurants in the Arista Development in Broomfield (right by FirstBank Center). Masa is a modern Mexican cocina serving contemporary Mexican fare rooted in traditional flavors that span the entirety of Mexico, rather than a singular region. (Try the street tacos. And the tequila.) Or, just head down the street to Hickory & Ash, a modern American meatery, with hand-crafted, Colorado-centric cuisine—much of which is hickory grilled, locally sourced and sustainable.

You’ll find Moxie Bread Co. in quaint downtown Louisville. And you’ll love the rustic, simple baked goods—served in a family-friendly, inviting environment. Inspired by Old World food craftsmanship, their love of baking is evident—and has been rewarded. Moxie was a James Beard semi-finalist.

Situated in Louisville since 2010, if you like ice cream, you’ll love Sweet Cow. This is the original location, and people can’t get enough of the small-batch ice cream. Handcrafted daily with the finest, locally sourced ingredients (along with a lot of love), you’ll find 22 flavors daily (including 2 sorbet options … proving that non-dairy can still be delicious).

Have a little more time? Boulder is just 15 miles away (and was named “America’s Foodies Town” by Bon Appétit). And Pearl Street was ranked among Food & Wine’s 10 Best Foodie Streets in America. What makes it such a culinary destination? Hard to tell. Could be its proximity to fertile farmlands, local artisan food producers and a thriving craft beer industry. We’d list some of our favorite restaurants here, but there are so many, they might deserve their very own blog (stay tuned).
