Shirin at Hotel Mercure down the street sent me here for dinner. I arrived about 15 minutes after it had closed, which I learned by asking the man who was in the kitchen behind locked doors. He suggested something else--a new Mexican place up the street--which I went to, but I came back the next night, sat outside [under a heater], and had a superb dinner of 2 eggs [I got them soft], medium spiciness [#2 on a 5 point scale], on a tomato sauce [I got mine with mushrooms]. It came with a small bowl of tehina [sesame paste], pickles, and bread. Server was a young French woman studying at the university. It was so good, I went back a week later, this time for lunch. Shakshuka was still terrific, but the service was not -- a different server, didn't bring me the tehina/pickles or the drink I ordered; an English speaker? language problems? Still, I would go back for the shakshuka. The owner said he opened about a year ago. I hope word of mouth spreads so he can keep going -- tho it's small [2-3 tables inside, a half dozen outside], and with 3 tables filling at once, the server couldn't keep up.
