I visited with a friend, and we enjoyed sharing the appetizer sampler and each ordered kebabs. For dessert, we shared a baklava. All of the food was excellent, service was very good, and the wine by the glass offerings were quite good.

Had lunch here on a whim and discovered a fantastic eatery. Had the mezza sampler and a gyro. Both were excellent. The environment was clean and bright with a little outside seating.
