Pretty space with faux explosed stone walls, but the noise!
The boyfriend and I shared two small plates ($7 each) and a pizza($14). The chicken in filo dough was good, but the harissa/tomato chutney brought it to new heights of flavor. Our favorite dish of all was the chicken skewers. They were grilled in a super flavorful marinade.
The margherita pizza was topped with fresh mozzarella. That always sounds good in theory, but what you end up with is spotty cheese coverage which means some bites of all cheese and some bites of all sauce. The sauce could have been zingier. Also, there was too much tomato juice (from the tomatoes) on the pizza in places. The basil tasted super fresh and flavorful.
I'd definitely go back, but the prices would slow me down a little.
