Fairly new restaurant. 2 Person lunch was $110. Sandwiches were grilled, (overdone), meats. My "Special" roasted lamb shank was $41. TC has many better, less expensive, dining establishments. For us, a BIG disapointment!

Stopped here for lunch as a group of 6. Portions were large and the food was fine. Nothing that I'd rush back for but I did hear one of the soups was very good.

This relatively new eatery is a total surprise. Fresh ingredients. Skillful preparation and Flavor that is unanticipatingly GOOD. The chef Sarkan unfolds his Mediterranean creations with ease. And serves portions fit for a Sultan. The front desk co-owner has a command of all things culinary...More

We stopped in on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The service and food were excellent. We had the Burrata appetizer which was really lovely and beautifully presented. The kofte and gyro wraps with handmade potato chips were also very good - big enough portions to have...More
