“It’s comfortable, it’s kind of trying to recreate the old pub culture,” she says.  “We’re trying to keep the noise level down so people can talk and have really good cocktails, fairly priced, and some really good cocktail food.”

And she promises it will be a cozy hangout when the season changes.

“There will be a fireplace operating, so in the wintertime it will be a nice place to come before dinner, after dinner… skip dinner.  Whatever!”

“It’s four seats every Friday and Saturday.  We only seat once,” Solomonov explains.  “It’s me, essentially cooking 10 or 12 courses and that’s it.  One menu — zeu (“that’s it”), as we say in Hebrew!”
