Mombar for 2 last night

We first had the combination platter of dips: hummous, baba gannouj, cheese, and one other that escapes me. These were presented in dollops on crackers of some nice kind, with slices of fruit on top. Pleasant, but I have to say that none of them was particularly distinguished, or maybe the small quantities with the fruit made it hard to tell. We also got the eponymous sausage in the appetizer portion. It was tender and tasty but again didn't wow me. Finally, we shared this clay pot seafood entree. The seafood (a couple head-on shrimp, some squid, a few chunks of fish, and a bunch of mussels) was all delectably tender, but the sauce was a pretty straightforward tomato number without any very distinguishing seasoning. Still, it was all enjoyable, the decor was entertaining, and the chef and maitre d' were very gracious. Plus, other things may be better, and so given some of the enthusiasm I've read and heard about the place, I'd go again.
