I'm always looking for delicious Mediterranean, of course, one should be able to find it in New York City. This corner casual restaurant is filled with upper east side energy.
The hummus had a wonderful texture and flavor BUT the pita bread was unlike any other flat pita I've eaten. It was puffy and light and not sure if it was homemade but that certainly seemed the case. They don't have greasy spanakopita, which I love, but their version is chopped spinach filling with a dollop of greek yogurt. Who ever says "give me a bowl and only spinach and I'm good"....well, that would be me. The crab cakes were small fried balls which were decent but the grilled shrimp appetizer was served on a bed of roasted red pepper paste puree that had a kick and was filled with flavor. An additional pita was in order just to consume that puree.
Now....the service wasn't great but when you got their attention, they responded pretty quickly
We sat outside which was crowed at the small table but fun on a beautiful evening and the inside looked full of fun energy.
And by New York Standards-----it was "reasonable" for all the food the three of us consumed.
