A few chowhounds have mentioned this place in passing, although it has ever had its own thread. It's an odd place (non-kosher mixture of Israeli food, Jewish deli food and some Yemenite dishes) in an odd location (residential side street). A few hounds praised the food, and I remember one saying that the schnitzel was the best s/he ever had. Some people said the prices are too high, but that the portions are huge, so you can make two meals out of them....
Well, I ducked in for a quick lunch on Friday in the middle of that weird brief rainstorm. Had falafel and a roasted eggplant salad, which were both great. (Not babaganush, but soft chunks of eggplant with a tomato-ey sauce.) The pita was fresh baked and awesome! The service was pretty bad, though, especially considering how empty the place was. (On a somewhat comical note, when I asked if the Reuben sandwich had sauerkraut, the waitress had not even HEARD of it!)
All in all, I think the food is worth checking out. But in such an odd location and with such mediocre service, I'm afraid the place isn't going to make it. Anyone else want to add their two cents?
