Fodor's Review

Exotic Mediterranean flavors with an Afghan twist take center stage at this artsy, stylish space with soaring ceilings. Traditional dishes range from Moroccan beet salad and apricot chicken flatbread to pomegranate eggplant and maush-awa, a soup with lentils, split peas, and lamb, topped with yogurt. The menus also include housemade pastas and numerous vegetarian options; fresh naan and delectable chutneys and dips accompany every meal. Evenings are especially

lively, when locals come to relax over wine and soft jazz at the blue-concrete bar, the heated patio with twinkly lights, or at a communal table near the open kitchen.
