Don't be discouraged by its "middle of nowhere" location, because it is well worth the trek. Taboon, named after the Arabic word for "oven", combines both Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean flavors. If you ask me, it's a match made in hummus heaven. When you walk in the doors you are immediately greeted by a wood-fired, dome shaped oven which, among other dishes, serves up the restaurant's famous focaccia. Once seated, you will be served a complimentary loaf, brushed with olive oil, sage, and fleur de sel. I dare you not to order a second!
Even during the week Taboon fills up fast with locals, so call ahead! Don't have a reservation? Ask if you can sit at the bar... same food and sometimes faster service.
Branzino baked whole in the taboon with rosemary and served with cauliflower, tahini, and taboon grilled asparagus After discovering this restaurant with my boyfriend three years ago, I can honestly say we have been back at least four times.
