Sevens Falls Restaurant 1858, a unique dining Broadmoor venue

by JoAnn Gadkowski Team

Now open, Sevens Falls Restaurant 1858, a unique dining Broadmoor venue with patio and bar seating. Taking its name from the Gold Rush era and the famous motto, ‘Pikes Peak or Bust’ of that time, Restaurant 1858 offers uniquely Colorado cuisine and seats approximately 100 guests in the restaurant’s main dining room and in additional outside seating and at the bar.

Executive Sous Chef of Broadmoor Restaurants David Patterson and Chef de Cuisine Kathleen Symons oversee a menu that showcases traditional Rocky Mountain flavors and takes its cue from the heritage of the Old West, blending low-country style with early frontier cooking. The menu’s wide array of German, French, and Creole cuisines are inspired by the immigrants who traveled west to seek their fortunes in the gold rush, making Restaurant 1858 the culinary melting pot of Cheyenne Cañon.
