Discovered that a new restaurant opened on Mercer near Houston where a wine bar used to be in that clothing store Lounge.
Had a great casual business meal for 6 of us today.
Had 2 sets of 6 tapas that we let the staff choose for us. Had Chizo (carrot salad), Leyla (diced roasted beets), Bekkoula (spinach/garlic in lime and oil), chick pea salad, and a cpl other cold dishes I can't recall now. Also had an order of moroccan merguez sausage and 3 types of Briouats (filo dough triangles). And two pitches of hot mint tea that they held the sugar on for us (much nicer that way).
Exceedingly friendly staff, funky decor, was a very pleasant experience. Meal for 6 was about $90 before tip.
Planning to go back to try the sandwiches.
