Photos: Ali Baba Grill now serving Mid-East feasts near DU

After Ali Baba Grill first opened in Golden a dozen years ago, two more outposts followed, including one in Greenwood Village and another in Highlands Ranch, which is now closed. But the Middle Eastern joint, whose cuisine is rooted in Lebanon, Persia and the Mediterranean, is now back to being a trifecta; a new location opened last week near the University of Denver, at 2060 South University Boulevard.

The long and narrow space, bedecked with banquettes patterned with apple-red fabric striped with primary colors; a small fountain that bubbles in the dining room; and textured gold walls hung with mirrors, ornate sconces and Middle Eastern art, trumpets the same menu as the other stores: a catch-all of shawarma, kabobs, curries, sandwiches, hummus, baba ghanouj and gyros, and while there's no liquor license (the owners are debating whether or not to apply for one), there are plenty of beverages that pair well with the plates, including strong Turkish coffee, banana milk, chai and fresh-squeezed juices.

Ali Baba is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Here's a first look at the space and the food, which is just as good, if not better, than the other two locations.

I would recommend going there very soon if you feel the need to go, because food joints on University between Buchtel Blvd and Evans are not known for longevity.
