Randolph Street restaurant offering a vast array of Mediterranean small plates.

Our Review

Antonia Asimis, daughter of a seasoned Randolph Street restaurant purveyor, might have aimed a sawed-off shotgun at the Mediterranean when planning her new small plates place: the menu is all over the map. There's even a nod to the more familiar environs of Halsted Street: flaming cheese. This unfocused approach was gnawing at me as my group dithered over the menu. But we enjoyed our meal, some of the highlights of which broiled baby octopus with arugula and limoncello, lamb and feta meatballs, and a grilled sausage sampler that included a surprisingly light morcilla and a terrific orange-scented loukaniko. Most of these items were very tasty, and the amarena cherry tiramisu with imported ricotta set a new standard for me. Overall the restaurant is doing a fine job exploiting whatever familial advantages Asimis may have in sourcing quality ingredients.
