Taverna Restaurant Review

: Sam and Kiley Wynne Efron turn out brunch, lunch and dinner in a rustic Mediterranean style that leans heavily on Greece and Spain. Start brunch with a salad of olive oil-poached artichoke hearts with shaved fennel, Marcona almonds, oranges, arugula and picholine olives before settling in with the Taverna hash, a melding of fingerling potatoes and house-made sausage and peppers, capped with a duo of sunny-side-uppers. Pizzas are also notable, and an order of cinnamon sugar zeppole (Italian donuts) served with a chocolate-espresso dipping sauce can't help but linger in your memory.
