AWARD: Best New
A dazzling triumph of new pride in the eastern Mediterranean and the power of old-world baking. Artisan breads, pastries and the cookies we love, plus Greek yogurt (with walnuts and dates), kebabs, a full mezze from hummus to fiery muhammara. Have pita sandwiches at lunch, halloumi cheese fries, orzo and couscous at dinner. Bright and handsome indoors, sheer delight outdoors.
