Description: A new restaurant by Alex Raij. She also owns Txikito in Manhattan
Reviewed May 16, 2012

This lively little restaurant in Cobble Hill turns out unusual Spanish dishes inflected with Moorish and Sephardic influences. Everything we've tried in two visits was very good or better: fried artichokes in anchovy sauce, flatbread with carmelized onions and blue cheese, salt baked fish, Moroccan lamb meat balls, paella with noodles. And who knew roast suckling pig was Sephardic? Most servings are small and good for sharing. The friendly young staff is understandably enthusiastic about explaining the menu's tasty offerings. Reservations for parties of four or more only.
