what a great place. felt transported back to the Middle East.
-Best baba ganoush I've had in the US - a pool of olive oil in the center, with some small diced veggies sprinkled round.
-Great plate of pickled turnip and olives brought to the table with warm pita. And a few other items to dip pita in.
-the chicken on skewers was fabulously tender and marinated in a nice blend of spices.
-not so pleased with the lamb kabob. kinda dry & tough. perhaps an off nite.
- we were lingering long after we finished eating, enjoying an animated conversation (did I mention the acoustics are such that you can have a pleasant conversation even tho the resto was full - albeit it's a small resto) and they brought over complimentary glasses of tea with fresh mint. very lovely touch. much appreciated.
i look forward to the next visit.
