This is a great place to go for dates or to meet up with friends, because the food is an experience. The small sharing plates have surprising ingredients and delicious flavors and keep the conversation and fun going between conversations.

There are Middle Eastern restaurants around, although I truly miss the Syrian/Lebanese ones that used to be in Boston (the Casbah, the Red Fez, the Sahara). And there are restaurants that serve meze (mezzo, mazzeh, maze) dishes. But this is the first one we’ve experienced...More

Their form of tapas was all having the same base ingredient. Perhaps, it was yogurt. That was fine if it did Not permiate over everything. They also need to keep away from the salt beds - too much saltiness! Supposedly hip and gourmet. Maybe hip...More

Not open for lunch. Noise level lively, if they did accommodate 16 for dinner, you wouldn't be able to hear everyone at your table. La Brasa isn't open for lunch either (except Sunday), or I'd recommend that. Bigger space... More
