The Gold Leaf Restaurant


Something amazing is happening in Fort Collins…

After 3 unforgettable years in operation, the owner of The Silver Seed, Taylor Smith, and his unparalleled team of talented individuals are proud to announce that we have officially begun constructing our new restaurant: The Gold Leaf Collective. It’s really happening!!

Our kitchen will be lead by Chef Daniel Gray and Chef Cameron Trezoglou, and will feature the best of what our local farms and foragers have to offer. The Gold Leaf will feature top-notch breakfast, lunch, and dinner plates paired with a unique selection of local beverages. The Gold Leaf’s menu is an ode to a seemingly ancient way of eating. Our focus is to feature ingredients harvested or foraged right here in Colorado both while they are in season and by using an array of preservation methods. We are working very hard to remain disconnected from the overly-wasteful – yet most commonly used – corporate food distribution companies. Our culinary team will reconnect our patrons with the abundance of sustainable, indigenous ingredients that can be found in Colorado both in nature, and from our network of local food purveyors that share our passion for good food.

Since our beginning, our mission has been simple: to show people that ethical, plant-based fare can be incredibly delicious. Over 20,000 meals later, the remarkable support and love of so many people throughout Colorado has propelled us into the next phase of our growth, and we are more ready than ever. We are creating a restaurant that is a collective of sustainability-focused individuals and like-minded companies that work together to deliver an exceptional culinary experience in a non-judgemental and comfortable space.

This year has a lot in store, and we cannot wait to open the doors to The Gold Leaf and share this excitement with our community. Stay tuned here for up-to-date info on our progress, as well as to find out when The Gold Leaf will open it doors, and when The Silver Seed season will begin.

Indeed, something amazing is happening in Fort Collins, and we thank each and every one of you for your help in making this dream a reality. We’ve come this far together, and our future is brighter than ever
