Help - What is the mystery spice at Gaby's?

jhulla | Mar 24, 2007 11:38 AM

Good Morning Hounds,

I really enjoy eating at Gaby's (Venice @ Motor). The Mediterranean inspired food is nearly all fantastic.

As you sit down, the staff always brings over some warm pita bread and some spice flavored olive oil. I usually eat the whole thing within a few minutes (to the embarrassment of my wife) and ask for seconds.

The mystery (for me anyway): what are the flavors added to the olive oil? Specifically, if I were to go my local Persian market, what would I buy to make it at home?
