Cafe Memmi

Ringing endorsement for Cafe Memmi!  We had a lovely date night on Thurdsay night.  Our meal was so full of flavor.  Unfortunately it was too dark in Bar at Braun Ct to take photographs. Everything was not only delicious, but also artistically beautiful. Pleasing to all senses.

My mouth was humming with the symphonies of Tunisia.  From spiced nuts to greens with a citrus vinaigrette, frites with sun-dried tomato aoili, sole perched on a saute of onion, sweet pepper, and fried egg, to poached meringues in a citrus custard, everything was stellar.  I walked away satiated but not stuffed. What struck me most of all was that everything was luscious and deep, but somehow light and delicate.  I am not deeply familiar with Tunisian cuisine, but now I will make it my quest to learn more.  It was an inspiring meal. Thank you, Amos and Sarah.

You can find Memmi at Bar at 327 Braun Ct every Thursday night or occasionally at Zingerman's on fourth.
