Supper Club - Taste In Mediterranean Food!

First Supper Club of 2013! Woooo!

We had trouble deciding where to go and finally chose this tiny gem - Taste In Mediterranean Food— the restaurant name accurately describes what we had :>

For the four (or 3 1/2? :>) of us, we ordered two dishes to share. One was the Mediterranean Platter Comb— a sampler of mezze, including Hummus, Baba Ganogh, falafel, dolmas, Tabouly salad, moroccan eggplant salad, mediterranean tomato cucumber salad, feta cheese, olives and olive oil. The other was the Taste In King Platter— a sampler of meats, including, lamb, chicken, Kefta and Shawarmas lamb and chicken with open face grilled spicy pita and flavored with homemade garlic sauce. The lovely waitress even gave Nui Nui a complimentary hummus and pita as we waited. All was delicious.

On Yelp, the place is rated 4.5/5 stars according to 347 reviews, as of this writing, and it totally deserves it. Service is counter and then served to your table. The place is small yet cozy and by 7:15pm on a Thursday night, I'm glad we made a reservation. Service and staff were sooper friendly. Going with the crowd, I also give it 4.5 stars :>

Nui Nui reigns the straw :>

The goods :>
Then for dessert, we got some baklava! How can you have mediterranean without baklava, right? :> This entire case is full of different kinds— walnut, pistachio, mixed nut, diamond-shaped, cigar-shaped... I don't know if I've ever seen so much baklava in one place... or, if in NYC, it's been a long time. As we were paying, I ordered a rice pudding too :> Can't pass up rice pudding if I still got room :> :>

Vid to come! :>
