New Executive Chef at BDT Stage Doug Groendyke

Boulder's Dinner Theatre changed it's name to BDT Stage this season, and now they have made another change, this time in the kitchen. The new production of Peter and the Starcatcher is also the first menu for their new executive chef Doug Groendyke.

Born and raised in Florida, honing his skills in restaurants and high end catering operations spanning the state from Boca Raton, to Gainesville and St. Augustine, Doug has most recently been spending time exploring the farm to table movement in Burlington, VT. Doug has worked at critically acclaimed establishments The Inn at Essex and The Daily Planet, both in Burlington.

The biggest challenge is just taking all my experience and passion for food that I have working a la carte, farm to table, and fine dining restaurants, and trying to transform that to this environment. And choosing the right kind of menu items that are still gonna blow customers away but we’re able to execute in the 20 minute rampage of 250 diners.
  • Roasted Chicken – Stuffed with caramelized apples and brie topped with a mushroom jus over Yukon mash with fresh daily vegetable.
  • Green Chili Pork – Fire-braised pork shoulder with a spicy green Chile salsa over basmati rice pilaf with fresh daily vegetable.
  • Maple Panko Crusted Cod – With a creamy artichoke and crab sauce over Yukon mash and fresh daily vegetable.

Fresh – Local – with Love,

You know - A lot of work goes into our food instead of just taking it out of a box like people may assume.
Salmon Filet – Mustard and brown sugar glaze, sweet soy and pineapple salsa over basmati rice with fresh daily vegetable.
Prime Rib – Slow roasted and seasoned to perfection. Served with au jus and a truffle herb butter, yukon gold mashed potatoes and vegetables.
"We are super excited to bring Doug aboard," explains Michael J. Duran, Producing Artistic Director for BDT Stage. "He possesses an incredible mixture of experience, education, and foresight. Our patrons are going to love him and what he creates for them."
