This Eastern Mediterranean go-to on MacDougal Street brings to life rustic, vibrant flavors found throughout Italy, Morocco, and Tunisia. The Space is stylish with a palatial front room featuring French doors that overlook quiet MacDougal Street. The front room feels like a farmhouse; the back room a charming garden. The menu is seasonal, only using fresh, local produce with menu highlights including the beet hummus with Nigella Seeds; grilled shrimp kebab served with pita, spiced yogurt, chermoula and charred onions; and the vegetable paella. Lastly, don’t leave without having a scoop of their gelato: toasted sesame, lemon currant sorbet.
