Cafe Aion has proven itself a new staple in any Boulder dining repertoire, and their specialty dinner nights only cement their place in any foodie’s dinner rotation.
Every Wednesday is Paella and a Bottle night at Cafe Aion, with a different paella and paired bottle of wine offered for a fixed price, but they have expanded to also include special occasion dinners as well. Floor manager Matthew Kenny sent us the following info on this month’s offering:
“We continue our summer dinner series, this month, featuring a farm that we admire for their produce as well as their philosophy,Flatirons Neighborhood Farm. Grown in the streets just a few blocks from us (a 10 minute walk if you care to time it) the produce we will feature comes from loaned parcels of land on surrounding neighbor’s properties, including back yards, front yards, as well as the city owned right-of-way along the street. These gardens have been carefully planted and tended to by a gaggle of volunteers, school groups and our favorite urban farmer Scott Hoffenberg. With produce so close the the doors of the cafe, we are super excited to showcase the goings on in our neighborhood.
Reservations are strongly recommended for this very special event. Requests can be made by calling 303-993-8131 or sending us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
The evening will be in our traditional tapas style of service and a few menu items are likely to be:
Quick pickled vegetables alongside our house-cured meats
Deep fried peppers with aioli and fleur de sel
Hand made pasta with FNF Basil pesto
We are also steeping basil in vodka for use in a cocktail.”
This very special dinner will take place on Aug. 25 and reservations are pretty much mandatory. To stay in the know about future special events at the cafe, you can subscribe to their excellent newsletter. Next month the chefs will be featuring Andy Hampsten’s olive oil.
