Ate here last night and have to rave. Beautiful atmosphere (beaten copper table-tops, intriguing lamps, warm and cozy) but the food is the real draw. One of the chefs is Bosnian and the Mediterranean/Ottoman influences show. Bread was rolls from Iggy (always a good sign for me) and delicious olive oil for dipping. Salad was very fine, fresh mesclun, lightly dressed in a vinaigrette. I had two apps for supper: the lamb stew with chickpeas and harissa (small filling bowl, $4) and potato/celery root pancakes with sour cream and spiced pear chutney (or something like that, $7). Kind of new age latkes, which were divine. My partner had the slow roasted lamb with vegetables that is cooked in an ancient-looking iron pot on the open hearth right there in the dining room. Both lamb offerings were exceptional. No room for dessert so I can't comment on that. Entrees are in the $15-20 range and everything shows an interesting touch. Service was very attentive.
