The Golden Chamber of Commerce has a fantastic Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning (May-October) from 8am to 1pm held in Historic Golden at 10th & Illinois.  The popular market features everything from fruits and vegetables to sweets, snacks, beef, buffalo, salmon, pork and so much more!

We are conveniently located directly across the creek from the market; therefore our Executive Chef Matthew White decided that attending the market would be a good way to start off his Saturday mornings.  He looks for the ingredients to create a delicious, buy local, Colorado Proud dinner special.   He picks up the items as he plans out the delicious dinner in his mind.

Making the stroll back to the hotel – arms full of product, he gets to work creating his decadent special.  He prepares everything and makes sure that it is ready to offer our guests during dinner as a one day only Farmer’s Market Special.

The special varies every week, but is some combination of an entrée with a salad and or dessert.  Price ranges between $18-26

Stop in the Bridgewater Grill this Saturday for dinner to savor Chef White’s creation!

We are proud to have started the Clear Creek Summer Series Concert event here at The Golden Hotel.

The performers will be playing for our guests and the community every Thursday evening from 6-9pm through September.

The musicians have intriguing backgrounds in music and several have performed throughout the world.  Some of the artists will even be debuting their new release within the next few months.

These bands have been part of some pretty big names along the Front Range for the past decade. Collectively they have been members of and / or performed with String Cheese Incident, Gregg Allman, Widespread Panic and many other popular bands. They have played with Bill Kreutzmann and Tom Constatin from the Grateful Dead, Jeff Pevar from Bonnie Raitt, and Melvin Seals from the Jerry Garcia Band.

Bill Nershi, who was the founding member for the String Cheese Incident will be performing with his wife Jilian who is also debuting her new CD release later this month.

We are happy and honored to be hosting these extraordinary musicians during the summer months.

We are proud to announce the promotion of Matthew White, as our new Executive Chef.  Chef White has been with our team for the past three years as Sous Chef under David Davis, who prior to Chef White served as Executive Chef at our property for four years.

Ever since the tender age of 5, Matthew had dreams of becoming a Chef and pursued it with passion and dedication, realizing his dreams with dishes that are both original and innovative.

With over fifteen years of experience in the industry, Chef graduated from the Johnson & Wales culinary program with honors in 2005.  Chef White proudly serves on the American Culinary Federation Colorado Chef’s Association (ACFCCA) through which he will continue the apprenticeship program that our hotel offers, as he is dedicated to developing young chefs.

Being a Colorado native, Chef White proudly focuses on utilizing locally produced foods and products, and is highly committed to our community.  Chef White constantly pursues ways to make foods fresher, healthier and move alive without sacrificing the intensity and excitement that the flavors bring.

This has always been Davis’s succession plan to have White replace him at The Golden Hotel and it is bittersweet for Davis to see his plan come to fruition.  Chef White is looking forward to managing the team, handling the administrative side of the kitchen, continuing to build and develop his team, interacting with our local community, as well as partaking in the philanthropic side of his position.

White has been an amazing team member at our property and will be sure to continue so as Executive Chef.  Stop in and join us in the restaurant, lounge or creekside and let Chef White serve you with his culinary excellence.
