Noa Café in Edgewater is easily missed. The only indicators it's a restaurant are an unassuming sign and a handful of high tables out front. It's a pared-down neighborhood spot, and as one would expect, meals here are a laid-back affair. The “progressive Mediterranean cuisine" is more comfort than haute, though daily specials such as smoked double-rubbed pork with blue cheese in a white-wine sauce speak to the restaurant's chef-driven side. The same can be said for the warm grilled octopus flanked by mixed greens and spaghetti squash. Noa's version is tender and brilliantly spiced. Those craving Middle Eastern flavors should order the mezze plate. Ideal for sharing, it comes with homemade hummus, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, grilled vegetables, and pita bread. And though chef and owner Adi Kafri was born in Israel, she has always been fascinated with Asian cuisine and has traveled abroad to study its intricacies. A must-try is the baked salmon in a dynamic teriyaki sauce infused with orange peel, scallions, ginger, and lemongrass. And let this be a warning to chocolate fiends: Noa may very well serve one of best flourless chocolate cakes in town.
