Divis Fancy opened its doors three weeks ago. Sam and his wife, Amanda, have ambitious plans to be open every day from 9am to 10pm, serving breakfast-lunch-dinner with the standard omelets, pancakes, waffles, sandwiches and salads, chicken, steaks and salmon. After two years of plans, construction, permits, and PG&E upgrades, the former used clothing storefront is transformed with richly colored walls, wood and brickwork.
Not on the Menu and not-to-be-missed: the Meze appetizer plate $6.95 has an assortment of hummus, baba ghanouj, olives, tabbuli, falafel and my favoritekibbeh. The kibbeh is a deep-fried crust of whole wheat flour and ground beef encasing a moist mouthful of pinenuts and ground lamb. Every dish is prepared to order with fresh ingredients and takes some waiting time. Order the house specialties. Turkish coffee $2.
