Had occassion to be at Tamuz last night for my husbands birthday. The food and service were excellent. I had the tortilla soup (pretty spicy) served with diced avocado, chica rones and cubed goat cheese (on the side). Followed that with the vegetariano plate which was a platter of humus, goat cheese, greek olives, tabule, tomato salad, dolmades and falafel (wish there had been more of those!) and the platter was excellent. I am from S. CA and have missed good middle eastern food. This platter is worth returning to Tamuz again.
My husband and friends each had a dish of the coconut shrimp and loved every bite (each shrimp was at least 3 bites big). One friend also had a plate of eggplant served with goat cheese and she didn't spend any time chatting since she was enjoying her dish so much.
The owner and head chef, is from Israel and the food was excellent. They even made the caesar salad at the table.
Service was excellent and they serve Mexican wines.
The restaurant used to be a private home and the balcony area upstairs is used for smokers. Live music is performed on weekends (a combo of guitar player and singer) and there is a lovely garden area to sit in and watch the illuminated water feature. Open lunch and dinner with valet parking. Reservations accepted and depending on the time you go most likely necessary.
Definately a place we would take out of town visitors.
Cost for two with wine (a glass for my husband) and tip was 700pecos - roughly $60.
