AMU History

In June of 2002, Izakaya AMU was created to cater to the local Japanese and Japanophiles living in and around Boulder. Since then, our seasonal menu and daily specials from the kitchen and the sashimi counter have continued to offer dishes known around the world.  The concept is to have a similar layout and atmosphere as you would find anywhere in Japan. The same commitment found in Japan to the quality of food and service is our focus at AMU. We emphasize a sharing atmosphere that includes food, drinks and great conversation between all that join us for a unique dining environment.
