AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The capital of Tajikistan, one of Boulder’s several sister cities, donated this elaborate ceremonial teahouse to Boulder. The city deliberated for years over the most suitable location, and downtown was finally selected. This exquisite example of classic central Asian teahouse is ornamented with brilliant polychrome tiles and carved wood. Restaurateurs Lenny and Sara Martinelli, who also own nearby Aji and Leaf, were selected to operate the teahouse. It serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and early dinner. Tajik lamb skewers, Persian sumac salmon and curry chicken wrap are oyster mushroom polenta, cappelini a la fresca but so are Indian masala dosa in this vegan-friendly restaurant. With such varied culinary traditions, moderate portions, a gurgling fountain, large windows that let in abundant natural light and lush indoor plants, it is an exotic restaurant—one that fans of dark, wood-paneled steakhouses may find a tad precious.
