Had lunch here and loved it. The mezze plate had some unfamiliar flavors that we loved and the grilled lamb on grilled pita was done to perfection. The chocolate ganache tart was wonderful. The deli counter has great looking prepared foods.

Wonderful place to meet friends and enjoy a delicious meal. Love their salads. They also have a take out deli in the back of the restaurant. Locals love to dine there. Valet parking, if needed.
