Beware of La Grenade! This former jewelry studio (Greek white and blue walls, cushioned benches, a bar you can dine at, barstools) now accommodates Alissa Guevara’s luminous cuisine, who uses her Tunisian and Spanish roots as a jumping off point for exploring the Mediterranean Basin…. What should you expect? Pita bread topped with meat (the day we went it was chicken souvlaki), fish (slow-roasted sardines) or labneh (with za’atar and harissa) topped with a mixture of zucchini, mint and feta or grated carrots, orange and cumin, plus mixed greens, red cabbage and chermoula. Even though they’re optional add-ons, the side dishes are highly recommended (frisky green asparagus; cute roasted sweet potato cubes; tahini, harissa, sumac and or/toasted sesame), as is the pistachio dessert – roasted nuts, ice cream, dough and grilled knafeh. // A.S.
FEELING THIRSTY? A dozen wines served by the glass, including a Bourgogne-Aligoté from the Domaine Laurent Cognard (€4) and an organic Vacqueyras from La Ligière (€6). Also some Mythos Greek beers or Portuguese Super Bock (€4.50 for 330 ml).
PRICE: Pita €7.50, mezze plate €10.50, sides €5, set menu €15 (+€2.50 with brunch), brunch à la carte €18-20 (Saturday and Sunday).
