Cafe Zitouna [San Francisco]

After a long period of indeterminate closure I was pleasantly surprised to see Zitouna was open last night and crowded at 8:30. They are closed Mondays, as always, and have modified hours of dinner 4:00 - 9:00 Tuesday - Sunday.
Just ate there for the first time last night. My family had merguez sausage, chicken shwarma, Loobia Tajine, shakshukah with meatballs, plus a piece of seminola cake and mint tea.
All very good--- mine was the Loobia Tajine, and the lamb and beans were wonderful. I wish I could go there more often and eat my way through the whole menu.
Just got back from a stupendous lunch at Cafe Zitouna with a French-Tunisian friend of mine, who's here from Paris.
I am happy to report the B'stilla (Bisteeya) is superb as I recall it from many years ago. We also had the lamb kebab, perfectly seasoned, and of course the breek and topped it off with the harira (semolina cake).
