What You Should Know:

This restaurant from Chef Ignacio Mattos balances laid back and lively vibes with a restaurant that makes every meal feel like a special occasion. The a la carte menu is beautifully compact, allowing each table to order most of the few dishes that are on the menu. The plates, which are best shared, arrive one by one, and are all simple, yet seriously thoughtful.

What I Liked:

A wonderfully crusted bread serves as the perfect accompaniment to a soft burrata with salsa verde.

Lamb ribs are tender enough to fall off the bone, and burst with undertones of charmoula, lemon and honey.

Is It Worth It:

The prices can get into the high $30 range for the larger plates, but these are best shared anyways as the real successes are in the smaller portions.
