  1. Yes, we went once, a few months ago, shortly after it opened. We got two sampler platters, the house combo and the mezze trio, so we could try lots of things. I'm trying to remember - we liked it, we would go back, but I don't recall being very impressed and excited. Our regular rotation includes Sushi Sam's and Osteria Coppa, with occasional forays into Hotaru. If we were in the mood for convenient Mediterranean (don't want to drive to Oren's), we'd return.

    I recall that the chicken was dry and maybe the rest of the meat too, except I think the lamb burger patty was fine. The waitress accidentally gave us tzajiki instead of baba ghanoush in my mezze trio, so when I told her, she gave us the baba ghanoush too. The tzajiki was good, the hummus was good, and I didn't like the plyaz. I liked the falafel, but it's a very different style than what I am used to. I would order the mezze trio again next time. The pita isn't pita as I know it, more of a flat-ish bread. The staff was very friendly.
