Meir Adoni offers a subtle, creative take on Middle Eastern traditional classics. Local flavors are distinctly honored including pistachios, rose water, eggplant, Persian lemon, lemon confit, harissa, Kadaif, and cardamom, among others. The dishes are blunder-free with some truly lovely discoveries including the Marrakech pan, a couscous with confit of duck, or the filet of veal cooked in coffee and cardamom. The fish dishes are also celebrated such as the very successful bass fillet and its black rice and root vegetable ragout with a Jerusalem artichoke cream that brings depth, lightness and a variety of textures. The portions are generous and we appreciate the elegant, unostentatious presentation. This is a high quality gastronomic dining experience in an understated setting with a lively open kitchen.
