THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Meme Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Meme showcases the talents and heritage of chef-owner David Katz, who named the restaurant for his Moroccan grandmother, an early culinary influence. Katz takes a clear-eyed approach to simple, savory cuisine, offering nicely seared scallops spiked with green tomato marmalade and chive oil, and whole organic chicken for two with seasonal accompaniments such as roasted mushrooms and onion grits or Dijon potato salad and grilled asparagus. The silky foie gras tart with caramelized onions and a drizzle of maple-sherry jus is another winner. The storefront corner restaurant is intimate --- just a snug 40 seats --- and the atmosphere can be a bit frenetic, but the cooking is addictive, the kind of comfort food that transcends cultures. Lunch on Thursday is known for its crispy fried chicken.
