The restaurant is beautifully decorated with bright Mediterranean colors, excellent
modern lighting, large open concept with a casual space in the middle with leather sofas
and a table for kids.
The food is delicious, healthy and unique. The spinach and artichoke dip with pita is good but
no better than everybody else. The server brought out extra pita strips.
The grilled chicken salad with beets and cranberry was wonderful.
The tomato basil soup was too salty. Most of the dishes were on the salty side.
Rustic Chicken Skewers were a good choice, although the eggplant and red pepper
medley was a bit stingy.
Moroccan Lemon Chicken was more Tuscan than Moroccan, but deliciously grilled over
hardwood. The Vegetable Couscous was interesting, but skimpy.
Not perfect, but quite inspired.
We will definitely be back to try out the other creations.
