Azitra, which opened in Broomfield in 2011, bills its fare as “classic Indian cuisine reinvented for today’s more discerning palate.” And how does that translate, exactly? The menu is filled with dishes predominantly from Northern India, with scattered Southern Indian touches like coconut, curry leaves and peppercorns. Certain preparations have been lightened, but there’s still enough cream that korma seems like itself, not a skinny, Photoshopped replica. Dough is brushed with ghee (clarified butter), then folded and flattened into paratha. And despite a small section of “contemporary” entrees, such as garlic-rubbed rack of lamb and scallops in saffron-lime marinade, the roster contains plenty of old standbys, which is welcome news for sentimental types who fell for chicken tikka masala or biryani long ago. Azitra saves its real innovation for the decor, with earth-toned booths and banquettes in a space that feels sleek and contemporary, even if the food is deliciously traditional.
