"Enter Pita Tree Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar, brought to you by the same team behind swanky Persian joint Shabestan. Chef Hany Mustafa Basyouni Gabr, who hails from Egypt, helms the kitchen with a menu that borrows ideas and dishes from all over the Mediterranean Basin. He prides himself on delivering healthy fare and it shows in the ingredients he use: sumac berries, barberries, pomegranate, tahini, yoghurt, and saffron all find themselves on the menu for their antioxidants and beneficial properties."
"I’m a sucker for a good dip and boy, is the Spicy Eggplant Dip ($8) good. Made with eggplant rubbed in red peppers, garlic, olive oil, and dried chilli, it’s well balanced – not overly spicy and retaining the richness that makes a good relish"
