Fodor's Review

The small plates on the largely Mediterranean-inspired menu at this suburban favorite are almost unfailingly good, so don't hesitate to order the more exotic-sounding dishes. Calling cards include the Moorish pork and rare coriander tuna with avocado-tomato relish. It's a place for sharing. There is an educated selection of wines, many of them Spanish, and specialty cocktails. Everything is served in a large, minimally decorated room lined with hard surfaces, which ups the noise level a couple of notches. Rotating art exhibits feature local and regional artists.
