This is why every month I look at the New Businesses / Restaurants link on Yelp. This place has been open three weeks. The owner is Moroccan and the manager Dave is hispanic - he admitted that his trying to recruit incredulous latin americans in the neighborhood is slowly but surely generating fans. The recipes are from the Moroccan mother of the owner. I had the standard lamb gyro (good, but seemed like the Kronos style stuff) on the plate with a cold green bean / herb / red onion salad (fantastic !!), the lentil veggie soup (fantastic !!), the hummus (maybe the best in town), and a little greek salad (they need to dress it, maybe forgot). This place is cute and impeccably clean and well worth stopping in. Best of all we left stuffed for 14 dollars. A very good value. David brought us complimentary kofka beef kabobs that were very good as well. They brag about making everything from scratch recipes and fresh, and it tastes and shows like it. Very solid addition to my hood. The Pita is soft and good too. Oh, and my wife is a falafel snob and says theirs is by far the best in town, and its scratch made too. I agree with her. They fry those balls when you order them, as it should be. My plate I think was 7 bucks. three falafels 1.50, her falafel gyro 5 bucks.
