At this restaurant, everything snaps of freshness, as if the vegetables has just been snapped from orchards bathed by the Mediterranean sun. Smoky-smooth hummus is scooped up by triangles of pita, and a tooth-rotting baklava awaits for dessert. The rice fluffs like basmati always should, an ethereally light platform on which all manner of proteins are piled. A majority of them will be fire-grilled, a nice-crusty burnt burnish crisping up the exposed edges of the ground-lamb patties called keftedes; the orange-tinted chicken morsels called souvlaki; and the lule kebab, the best thing that can happen to ground beef. For the latter, the meat is formed around a flat skewer, then roasted to a yielding brownness--the most herb-imbued lule kebab outside of Athens. It's fragrant, soft as a down pillow and melts much in the same way that grilled tomatoes do: into deliciousness.
