Meet your chef
Chef Biju Thomas is a professional chef known for light, simple dishes bursting with bold flavors. He has designed the menus of many successful restaurants in Denver and Boulder, Colorado including Biju’s Little Curry Shop.
Born and raised in south India, Biju found his love of all things food while growing up on a small family farm and cooking alongside his large family, all of whom cook, love to throw big dinners, and talk about food at all times.
Biju has appeared along with Guy Fieri on the Food Network’s DDD, the show ”Scraps” on A&E, dozens of local and national TV shows, and podcasts. As an entrepreneur, Biju is a co-founder of Boulder based sports nutrition company SkratchLabs, and in 2020 helped launch the popular online cooking platform mixn-match.com.

To help bring the vibe, longtime lovebirds Niki + Luke of The Dollhouse Thieves will serenade you + your sweetie with a special live set during dinner.
Their musical style blends elements of neo-rock with indie-folk using jazz-influenced vocals and unconventional instruments such as accordion, clarinet, and trombone. Did we mention they also take requests?
