This place would be perfect if you could always find a seat. It's a tiny little place, but they work with what they have, and I personally find it exciting to be amongst others who value excellent food over comfort. The food is divine, inventive, made with care, and fresh. Try their Turkish breakfast (available mornings and weekends until 3), and you will never look at an egg the same way again. Order mezze (salads and spreads) singly or as a platter (get the platter-- just do it). If you are vegetarian, you will be in heaven. I would say that more than half of their offerings are vegetarian-friendly. Their prices, while higher than your average breakfast/lunch joint, are more than justified, as the quality of their food surpasses that of anywhere else I can think of in the Boston area for lunch. I come here with my husband when we want something really special for lunch. We go to Oleana (sister restaurant serving dinner, run by the same chef) when we celebrate special occasions.
