Bobby Stuckey & Lachlan Patterson - Founders
In 2001, Stuckey and Patterson worked together at The French Laundry, Thomas Keller’s renowned restaurant in Yountville, California.
They later moved to Boulder, CO with the vision of opening a neighborhood restaurant reminiscent of the Italian frascas they visited in Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Opening their first restaurant, Frasca Food and Wine, in August 2004 after researching and traveling throughout Italy, both were deeply inspired by this region in particular. In 2004, Stuckey earned the Master Sommelier Diploma from the Court of Master Sommeliers. In 2008 Patterson won the James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southwest then in 2010, 2011 and 2012, Frasca Food and Wine was nominated for Outstanding Wine Service, winning the prestigious award in 2013.
Lachlan and Bobby opened Pizzeria Locale Boulder as a full-service restaurant in January, 2011 with the intent of recreating the flavors and vibe of a pizzeria in Naples, Italy. In May 2013, and in partnership with Chipotle Mexican Grill, Pizzeria Locale Denver opened the first fast-casual location, with a simplified menu and a revolutionary custom-designed oven. They have gone on to open additional locations in neighborhoods around Denver.
