January 2017

Happy New Year, RARE Fans!!

Thank you all for a fantastic 2016 and our 2nd anniversary in Fort Collins.  We’re stoked we can continue to share our love of Italian cuisine and wine with the community!

To kick-off the new year, we are hosting a month-long special on our dry-aged steaks!  January is National Meat Month and we plan to share info about the dry-aging process all month long on our social pages.  Stop in and enjoy 10% off Bone-in steaks: the Fiorentina (an Italian Porterhouse) & the 24 oz. New York Strip.  These are subject to change depending on availability, so get in while you can to enjoy the best steaks in Northern Colorado. 

A savory dinner awaits...

Your New Year Resolution was to get more protein, right? Or maybe improve your diet in some way?  A dry-aged steak will not only fill your protein need, but it’s also an incredibly flavorful way to enjoy a steak.  The dry-aging process reduces the water content in the meat, therefore concentrating flavors making each bite melt-in-your-mouth delicious.  Paired with some sautéed spinach and potatoes, you’ve got a perfectly balanced – and healthy – meal.  With our locally sourced beef, you’re making a commitment to your health, the environment, and the community

Dry-aging is difficult and expensive – which is why many restaurants do not do it – but damn, does it make a phenomenal steak.  The time and energy (and patience) put into the process truly results in a quality steak.  At RARE, we aren’t afraid of a little work, which is why we not only dry-age our steaks, but we also hand-make our pasta and cheeses, hand-toss our pizzas, and even have an herb garden in our windows year-round.

OK, so maybe steaks aren’t your thing or you’ve got a friend who’s vegetarian that you want to join you for a delectable meal – FEAR NOT!  Tomorrow – Wednesday, January 11th – we launch our Winter Seasonal Menu, including plenty of vegetarian options, a seasonal risotto update, and the return of the beloved Agnolotti dal Plin – a chef’d up version of your favorite stuffed pasta.  We even added the Arancini appetizer back – the crispy stuffed risotto balls.

We hope to see you at the start of this new year to take advantage of #NationalMeatMonth and experience the Winter Menu! 


Grazie Mille & Happy New Year!
