The restaurant itself is less of a restaurant and more of a Meditteranean-themed bistro/retail store. The front portion of the restaurant makes up the seating area, while the back portion of the restaurant houses a small bakery, where homemade croissants, tarts, and other delicious things are sold. The middle section of the restaurant makes up the retail area, with floor-to-ceiling shelves lining the walls, display tables set up all about, and best of all, a tasting area where one can sample many of the products on display.
In all, what could have been an establishment that focused on tacky salesmanship and sub-par food is actually a delightfully warm and cozy hybrid of food meets retail. Check it out for yourself, because I guarantee it is unlike any establishment in which you have ever had the pleasure of dining.
