Arugula Restaurant Review: Arugula’s menu is inspired by the flavors of the Middle East, Italy and France, and everything is prepared in house. The Mediterranean bistro fare, served in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, includes seared ahi with coriander-scented baby spinach and oven-roasted tomatoes, and a "napoleon" of roasted eggplant and wonton with sweet red onions, tomatoes, feta, watercress and tahini. Desserts are equally interesting, from the croissant bread pudding to the lemon curd-filled butter cake. Profiteroles, donut “nubs” dusted with cardamom-cinnamon sugar and served with dark chocolate and white chocolate ganache, is a favorite. House wines include Spanish Garnacha and Macabeo as well as a selection of French and California whites and reds.
