Village Voice's Description
This French bistro has an intriguing sideline: Tunisian food, including a few specialties you won't find elsewhere. Foremost is brick, a curious fan-shaped pastry featuring canned tuna and a runny egg that remains hemmed in until you bite down and the yolk squirts all over everything. Hey, it's good! There's also a spicy onion, tomato, and red pepper bread dip called mischouia and an abundant mixed grill matching four merguez sausages with four fork-tender baby lamb chops. Be warned: The Moroccan dishes, like the lamb-and-lemon tagine, bomb.
Tips from foursquare
The risotto is to die for. Also the lamb turine.
Big portions! Don't come here if you want a light meal...
Coucous with merguez, chicken farfalle, red berry tart. But everything is great.
