I should have written this as soon as I got home....I tend to forget things. We have some friends who we love to try new places with and this was our one for March.
When we walked in about 5:30 PM on a Saturday night it was surprisingly not crowded yet...we were warmly greeted by staff while we picked out our table. I am glad we came when we did, because about a half an hour later it was packed! It is very simple inside and on the smaller side...not a place if you want a romantic date I don't think....unless you can get one if the two tables tucked back in the window alcoves...we lucked out.
We started with the Grape Leaf Rolls and the sample of sauces with some warm fresh pita bread...Yum! My husband who is super picky was the only one who did not like the Grape Leaf Rolls, don't go by that though he is a pretty basic eater. We ordered beer and wine from the menu and even though there were only two choices of white wine by the glass, we were very happy with the one we ordered, second one down on the list...however next time we will go ahead and order a bottle! The boys enjoyed the selection of beer.
Main courses, we all loved! I had the Chicken Kabobs with Rice, my husband ordered the Combo Patter of a ton of meat....almost too much for him, but he was happy. Our friends ordered the Lamb Shank...I don't do Lamb but he loved it and his wife ordered the Pork Chop with Potatoes....she has a lot of food allergies and is Gluten Free so she was thrilled to find something good she could have.
For dessert...yes, we went there....and as full as I was and ready to be sick I ate it all besides the one bite that was going to put me over the edge. My friend and I had a custard wrapped in phyllo dough soked in honey....I can't remember the name, but man it was good. My friends husband ordered the baklava and said it was great. I would have ordered coffee but our waiter told us it is very strong so I passed.
Speaking of our waiter, and I wish I had his name, he was perfect. Attentive but not bothersome, very knowledgable about the menu and had a great sense of humor. As the restaurant got packed we never felt it and we were taken care of just as we were when it was half full.
Check it out, you won't be disappointed!
