Deta, the sassy cook who used to run this place, is no longer at the helm of the shop she started. And her loyal gang of Eastern European regulars, who used to spend their days here smoking and talking? They’re gone, too. But the burek—the café’s signature item—remains. Delicate, flaky pastry dough is filled with spinach, potatoes, beef or cheese—or a combination thereof—and wrapped into a Frisbee-size coil. It’s best attacked with a fork—or two forks and a friend, if you don’t want to slip into an afternoon food coma.
