My friends and I went in to check the place out this past Thursday night and I am excited to share with you my wonderful experience. But first, here's a little parking tip. There is valet parking across the street by Rocco's Tacos for $10, but we happened to find the parking garage just literally around the corner which cost us just $3 for 3 hours. Yes, we indulged for 3 hours! LOL
Okay, so now on to the indulging part...the Grade A Ahi Tuna we sampled was THE BEST tuna sashimi I have EVER had! It was SO fresh and the sauce they used to marinate the tuna in was extremely flavorful. (This item is not yet a staple on their menu, and was served as a special for our table on this night, but...I am hoping that they will soon make it one!)

The stunning 4200-square-foot restaurant and lounge offers indoor seating for 150 guests, and al fresco dining for 15 guests. We sat at a cozy table tucked into a little nook.
We next indulged in the Mezzette Platter and the Calamari Fries. The burnt baba ghanoush was delicious and the crispy chick peas, well I was popping them into my mouth like they were bar nuts. Couldn't get enough. My friends and I all agreed that the Calamari Fries were so unique. We never had anything like them and we really enjoyed the dipping sauces served with them too.
