Inside the restaurant can seat 40, and weather permitting, another 20 outside.

The new name of the restaurant focuses on the chef’s refined, Sephardic, French-Tunisian cuisine, and honors the beloved spicy sauce of Tunisia, known as “the ketchup of the country” – harissa and will offer made-to-order gourmet sandwiches, salads, grilled items, entrees, and sweets.  The restaurant’s new items includes an expanded menu of signature favorites with new and rare Parisian dishes, such as offals grillades, and Kosher Charcuterie Boards.  They will still feature their popular California-inspired salads, entrees, desserts, pretzel rolls,and BBQ Sunday of Got Kosher?, along with selections of authentic, French-Tunisian couscous, and offbeat tagine feasts. The restaurant is already offering an array of fine beers and wines.

Specialty items and signature dishes include:
