Efendi Grill on W14

Lynn | Sep 19, 2000 01:01 PM

It ain't pretty, but it's pretty darn good: the "baked eggplant" wrap (also avail as "sandwich" and "container") at the new (?) Efendi Grill on 14th btw 8/9. It's a teeny hole in the wall with a counter and those gyro spits that advertises itself as "The New Taste Sensation from Europe."
Anyway, the eggplant. Mooshy sweet smoky, texture somewhere between baba and caponata. Optional lettuce (iceberg stays crispy in hot sauce!), onions and condiments. Total yum. Only minus: the grilled pita gets soggy. Bring a fork, and not to a business lunch.
