Eucalyptus Review

Owner-chef Moshe Basson, repeated winner of international couscous contests, has explored the kitchens and fields of older Jewish and Arab women to revive antique recipes and unfashionable ingredients. The result is a delicious and intriguing feast. Appetizers are all tasty, but try the figs stuffed with chicken breast in a tamarind sauce and the extraordinary stuffed mallow leaves (instead of conventional dolmades). Two exquisite mains include the traditional makhloubeh with chicken and rice, and the clay-baked lamb in pastry with okra. Finish with unusual desserts and herbal tea. If you're in the mood, ask Basson to share some of his culinary lore.
