Tapas at Cafe Aion —Photo By Carol W. Maybach
If food is about community (and you know it is), it’s easy to understand why I’m so drawn to Cafe Aion. In its five years since opening on the Hill in Boulder, the restaurant has always focused on tapas and large-format dishes (the fried cauliflower with saffron yogurt and the paellas are staples...
