A morsel lifted from next week's main plate Cafe review:
We were started with a few slices of baguette and a black plastic ramekin of cold, hard butter -- seconds before our Mediterranean appetizer platter arrived, served with warm, partly blackened triangles of pita. The hummus was fresh and well-lubricated with olive oil, while a smidgeon of baba ganoush was pulpy if pleasingly infused with cumin. Centering the trio was a mint-dominated tabbouleh salad. You can find better and worse versions of all three, but mostly better.
