Ali Baba is a Lebanese restaurant, a Persian restaurant, a Mediterranean restaurant with hints of Syrian and Saudi Arabian modernity and haute cuisine. It’s also a mini-chain that got its start in Golden fifteen years ago, when partners Fiyahd Aoutabachi and Mahmoud Dukmak opened the first Ali Baba
, which is still growing strong. There's now a restaurant in the DU area
, too, and although a Denver Tech Center location just closed, Aoutabachi is opening a new Ali Baba in the very hot dining neighborhood of LoHi, at 2201 West 32nd Avenue
. That's on the corner of 32nd Avenue and Vallejo Street, on the same block where Juan Pedro and Max MacKissock will open Bar Dough, right next to Highland Tap & Burger.
