Old Jerusalem Restaurant: Reviews

Old Jerusalem Restaurant: Reviews

Rebecca: “Kunafa is a very popular Palestinian dessert and Old Jerusalem makes it in house on a gigantic cast iron griddle. It is a must try, although it might not suit all palates.”
Victoria: “Our food came fast for one; the other took ten more minutes, while the staff was very attentive checking on us and filling waters, the quality of food was lacking.”
Chris: “The Fetta with meat: lamb slices on garlicky, lemony hummus that was our clear favorite.”

Baker Street Bistro: Reviews

Baker Street Bistro: Reviews

Chris: “The well-known secret is the rotating prix fixe, which is a three-course meal that will leave you full, happy, and still with enough money for drinks, all for about $20.”
Rebecca: “The other star was the Steak Tartare, of which I am a fan, and order often when I have French food. Their version had the most perfectly balanced flavors I have ever had.”
Victoria: “The Coquilles St-Jacques au Coulis de Poivron Rouge with Puree de Brocolis and Courgettes Sautees was the hands down real winner!”

Maykadeh Restaurant: Reviews

Maykadeh Restaurant: Reviews

Shahnam: “The Soltani (which in Farsi means “fit for a king”) consists of a skewer of ground lamb and one skewer of the best filet mignon you have had.”
Karen: “The Kashke Bademjan was my favorite- a warm eggplant dip that was delicious.”
Jody: “The desserts were stellar; the Poached Pear in Shiraz reduction sauce and ice cream was gorgeous.”

Karen: “For dinner, I always make a point of ordering the Salmon Taco- it’s a big piece of grilled salmon with a delicious green salsa and crema topping.”
Shahnam: “The quality of the ingredients is good and one can tell it’s fresh. But our enchiladas were served lukewarm and not hot enough.”
Jody: “The Plantain Burrito was brilliant – the candied, caramelized taste plantain was a great foil to the roasted red peppers and the smoky chile salsa, pico de gallo and fresh cilantro.”

Angela: “A definite must have is the Tuna Melt made with fresh albacore tuna! The sandwich was big, toasty and delicious.”
Matt: “The meat was tender and moist yet a tad under seasoned. But when eaten together with the other ingredients, it was a satisfying and hearty meal.”
Leanne: “They use farm fresh cucumbers (with the all-important bumps) resulting in a perfect bite.”

Perbacco: Reviews

Perbacco: Reviews

Scott: “Perbacco’s Pappardelle pasta with slow cooked short rib ragu and grated fresh horseradish is extraordinary.”
Rochon: “The scallops were tender and moist; however, with a quantity of only 3, one can only be left with an unfulfilled desire for more.”
Paolo: “The Pork Shoulder was moist, tender and yet browned with a crisp outer layer.”

Old Skool Café: Reviews

Paolo: “I topped off the evening with a Lavender Cheesecake for dessert, which had fresh strawberries, mint garnish and a balsamic sauce. I like cheesecake, but wow!”
Rochon: “This was a true hidden gem; a bit hard to find, but worth the trouble.”
Scott: “The show stopper of the evening for our table was Abu’s West African Peanut Butter Stew. Wow.”

Contigo: Reviews

Contigo: Reviews

Matt: “…start off with one of their cava selections, be prepared to split all of the dishes (served tapas style), and never skip the churros!”
Tanya: “My favorites at Contigo are the Crab Salad, the Jamon Fritters, the Patates Braves, and the Ahi Tuna.”
Jim: “The big hit for me was the Croqueta de Jamon Serrano which is a crisp, round creamy fritter of Spanish ham.”
