First and foremost I could kick myself for passing this gem of a restaurant for so many years! Being in a nondescript shopping strip I'll use that as my excuse for not giving it a try!
From walking in the door with a little nook on the right side all I can think of is the word 'charm' and that includes the hostess and the server. They greeted us with smiles and upon entering the main dining room I broke out in a smile for no reason except---yep, there's that word again--it radiates charm with booths on the left, round tables down the center and square tables on the left.
Our server Julio, with a weird sense of humor like mine, obviously a professional old fashioned waiter, couldn't had made our first time more comfortable and welcoming.
I could go on talking about the chandeliers and their delightful trimming, the green lit ceiling, etc., but let's get to the food. As soon as we sat down Julio put a dish of warm pita triangles on the table and handed us the menus pointing out the separate lunch menu with 15 items.
The items ranged in price from $12.99 to $22.99 with selections of salads, sandwiches and platters with the latter including hummus, rice, tossed salad, a thimble size of garlic butter (which next time I will ask for to put on the pita triangles) and the main dish plus Iced Tea or American coffee is included. I ordered the shrimp platter which is served with 5 good sized shrimp in a light, tasty sauce. (A minor complaint--it wasn't served on a skewer! You'll understand when you see their marque!)
Excellent service, excellent food in a charming atmosphere--can't wait to try the other 14 items on the menu and that is before tackling the dinner menu which I didn't even look at!
