Israeli chef Shlomi Biton doles out Mediterranean-accented tapas at this small-plates joint. Black lacquered two-tops are covered with shareable coastal fare like sardine crostini, falafel buns and eggplant caviar dressed in date honey. The bar pours brandy-spiked Moroccan tea and slushy Limonana tinged with arrack.
