This is one of the (many) reasons I regret moving to Santa Rosa. The crash and burn of the mid-priced but excellent restaurant. I loved the Tahini Grill. Excellent mezzes. Excellent kabobs. Excellent everything. Seductive belly dancers even.
I was to join some friends there for dinner about two weeks ago. I got there first and the place was being torn apart. I spoke with one of the workers who turned out to be the person who is planning to open a new restaurant at the site sometime this month. From his description, it sounded a bit over-concocted. Updated Mediterranean with contemporary yadda-yadda and so forth. But I will of course give it a try.
There is no joy in Mudville.
