THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cal's Restaurant Review

: At this chic bistro, owner Khalil Ayoubi’s huge modern paintings cover the walls, and the menu reads Mediterranean and beyond: seared tuna carpaccio with shaved Parmesan, warm goat cheese salad, potato-crusted seared sea scallops, crab meat napolean in a lemon mayonnaise---and that’s just to start. Among the entrĂ©es, you’ll find everything from pan-seared herb-crusted salmon sided with potato artichoke gratin, farm-raised striped bass fillet and rack of lamb with rosemary potatoes to steak frites and the house’s signature hamburger. The wine list may be unexciting, but it’s decently priced.
