Time Out says

Offering a taste of neighborhood spots in Israel, Andersonville restaurant Fiya honors the rich heritage of Levant cuisines. Husband-and-wife team Mark Bires and Mindy Friedler pull recipes and inspiration from their frequent research trips to the Middle Eastern country, of which their daughter is a dual citizen. The menu mostly revolves around two pieces of equipment: a massive wood-burning oven and a wood smoker, both of which lend a fiery kiss to the fare. Start with a selection of salatim, or Israeli salads and spreads, like seasoned cauliflower, Moroccan carrots, pickled veggies and labneh. Take it to the finish line with a pita sandwich, za'atar fries and a wood-oven tart for dessert.
