On Brattle Street in Harvard Square. Ate there for the first time tonight and it was excellent, though spendy. About $95 including tip for five generous tapas, a glass of wine, and bottled water for two.

Roasted lamb shoulder with spicy garlic yogurt is OUTSTANDING. Next time we may just order three of those. Yum.

Second favorite: Roasted beets with goat cheese, pesto, and baby arugula. I never get tired of beets and goat cheese.

Also had tuna with green beans and olives and sort of fancy devilled eggs -- quite a nice chunk of tuna that had been very nicely grilled -- really more of a small meal than an appetizers.

Turkish meze plate was excellent, though rather rich by the end of it.

Finally, grilled calamari -- also excellent. Served with blood orange and lots of cilantro and kalamatas. The citrus with the calamari was REALLY good.

Service was excellent. Atmosphere noisy bistro-style. Drink menu looked good, but I didn't try any cocktails. On the whole, I would gladly go back when I can next afford it.
