Details: Flavors and aromas are our lifeblood in the restaurant industry and, in the rich cultural heritage that is America, our biggest asset. President Trump’s recent Immigration Ban flies in the face of everything we believe in.  In our restaurants, we don’t judge people by the color of their skin or the religion of their motherland.   Their merit emanates from the depth of flavor they can coax from a sauce, their determination and hard work. Quite often the very best cooks, chefs, and restaurateurs are folks who come from distant lands and bring a special tradition of hospitality and cuisine to share with their new world.

Chef Kyle Mendenhall of Arcana (American cuisine) will join Chef Dakota Soifer at Café Aion (Spanish, Middle-Eastern/North African cuisine) in preparing delicious dishes representative of the seven countries named in Trump’s recent Immigration Ban. The evening will begin with a reception of small bites, drinks, and a few words from the Director of Communications at the ACLU Denver office. Afterward, guests will enjoy a four-course meal with beer and wine from here and abroad.

We do not believe in fear and isolation.  We relish celebrating our diversity and invite you to join us at our table for a night of solidarity.  We will be featuring dishes from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen.  Proceeds from the evening will be donated to the ACLU in support of the relentless work they do, protecting all humans’ rights.
