Executive Chef
Spruce Farm & Fish, Hotel Boulderado
Boulder, CO

John Payne is the Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director at Spruce Farm & Fish and the historic Hotel Boulderado.

Payne—a man with towering credentials from Seattle to San Francisco, including a stint at nationally lauded The Herbfarm–is an unassuming man, whose keen focus and energy is on his food. His goal is simple: Keep it simple. But simplicity does not preclude quality at the Boulderado's three operations.
