This was another one of Julie's (travelmad478) picks, we had brunch here with her mom before going to see a play at a nearby theater.

The restaurant is a small comfortable place, crowded on a Sunday afternoon but not noisy.

Our waiter, although quite pleasant to look at, was rather inattentive, as we were not in a rush, it didn't matter much. Other servers seemed to be friendly and attentive.

Favorite Dish: The menu is Middle Eastern/Mediterranean. We started off with a basket of brioche, a fabulous selection of breads and pastries, some with a delightful chocolate filling. Our second appetizer wasn't brought out because it was not up to the chef's standards (too salty).

The brunch menu was limited, I ordered a caesar salad with cured lamb which was OK but a rather small portion although I had filled up on bread and mint tea and was satisfied. The dinner menu looked interesting, if I were to go back it would be for dinner.
