Jamila's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Proprietors Moncef and Jamila Sbaa offer authentic Tunisian fare, and are a constant presence in the dining room, making sure every guest is well tended. Meanwhile, the kitchen turns out the restaurant’s specialty, couscous with lamb, chicken or the combination royale, as well as more esoteric dishes, such as chorba (a whole-wheat fish soup with lemons and capers), brik au thon (phyllo stuffed with tuna, potatoes and onions) and grilled merguez (lamb sausage). Appetizers include escargots (heavy on the garlic butter) prepared with Calvados, and mussels in onion broth. For dessert, try the dark or white chocolate mousse. The wine list is surprisingly extensive and complex for a place of this size.
