Chai & Chai opened in the fall of 2013 in an unlikely stretch of fast-food restaurants at the heart of the Anschutz Medical Campus. Owner Venu Alla, an Indian architect and tech consultant, was inspired to start a restaurant by Chez Panisse -- but his place is very different from that legendary spot. Chai & Chai is a dual-concept restaurant, serving both Indian and Arabian food. But rather than offering fusion, the two kitchens operate separately under one roof, serving a limited menu of fast-casual options at lunch and a broader selection at dinner. Consistency varies, but the dosa is so good, you could live on bread alone.
