Fodor's Review

This popular haunt has been baking fluffy focaccias for 20 years. There are many toppings (don't miss the black-olive spread), and some tasty starters (try the mushrooms stuffed with goat's cheese or the fried calamari). The chicken livers stir-fried with apples, shallots, and nuts are delicious. There are generous sandwich options, including the sirloin strips. This is also one of the city's few restaurants to flaunt Passover restrictions on eating leavened dough. Reserve a table on weekends.
