Village Voice's Description
The brik alone makes this new North African worth a visit, a half-moon turnover fashioned from flaky warka pastry, filled with tuna, capers, parsley, and an egg that gets cooked as the brik fries. Among entrees, the prune and lamb-shank tajine rules. Note that neither it nor the less desirable chicken, lemon, and olive tajine is served in the traditional conical vessels. The couscouses, chicken bastilla (big round warka pie), and grilled merguez sausages are desirable entrees. The two Algerian reds on the wine list are good deals, drinking better than lots of French stuff from the other side of the pond.
Tips from foursquare
The head chef Luisa Fernandes won an episode of Chopped (one of my fave shows on The Food Network) so that's a great selling point all on its own. Great atmosphere, tasty food & very friendly staff.
Actually, the service is horrific. Super slow.
Get a glass of sangria, sit outdoors and people watch onto 2nd ave....a true East Village moment.
The horseradish sauce here is outstanding. Perfect for the dollar oysters. Plus the specials aren't only at the bar!
My favorite Mediterranean restaurant! Love clams, grilled Octopus, and best Rib Eye Steak! Go Chef Luisa!!!
