But that, apparently, wasn't enough for Aoutabachi. I just talked with one of the managers at the original Ali Baba Grill, and he confirmed that Ali Baba has snagged a space in the Landmark development in Greenwood Village. "Same owner," he insisted. "Same menu. Same everything."
Which is very good news for all the Landmark locals and anyone else in the area who (like me) would occasionally find themselves making the long drive all the way to Golden just for a hit of the house hummus and ten or twelve pieces of baklava.
The way things are looking right now, the new Ali Baba (which is just waiting on permits, according to the manager) might manage to get open before the end of December. Failing that, though, the fallback date is January 1.
