We went here with a walking tour and it was definitely the best stop. I love how the owner uses fresh, local sources. We'd like to see them open a branch in Chicago!

This (tiny) restaurant has a great selection of falafel-based dishes, almost all (maybe all?) of which were vegetarian. I tried the Mexican, and my companion had the Original. Both were delicious. The flatbread is fresh, a good choice of ingredients, the falafel nice and the...More
