I noticed yesterday that a new restaurant opened on 13th St. (btw Webster and Franklin) attached to the newly refurbished Clarion Hotel (formerly the Will Rogers Hotel before it had a fire). It's a smallish placed called Maisa and their menu says "Simple, Fresh, Beautiful Home-style Italian & Mediterranean Cuisine".
The place has that bloodless, new hotel look. I'm trying not to assume that the food will be institutional and pedestrian. There are a few possibly interesting items on the menu (a lamb stew item listed as "Tajene - a North African specialty").
I'm curious if anyone has ventured in there yet and can report.
