Cafe Aion is a Spanish & Moroccan inspired restaurant on The Hill, near CU in Boulder, CO. We connect with these cuisines for 2 main reasons.
1. The Style of Eating - We love being able to sample a variety of flavorful bites and sips with our friends in an informal manner. Also, gathering around large shared platters (paella!) is a wonderful way to share a meal. Both Spain and Morocco celebrate this style of dining.
2. Though we have no coast, there are many environmental and agricultural similarities between Colorado and these countries.  We find local farmers and ranchers growing, peppers, onions, eggplant, lamb and many other wonderful ingredients that one would find in Spain and Morocco. Being able to cook traditional dishes with Colorado ingredients is the best!
