Lonely Planet review

The sister restaurant to Serafina , and right round the corner, Cicchetti has a small kitchen built around a wood-fired brick oven and a menu of Mediterranean-influenced snack plates that, in combination, add up to an immensely satisfying meal. Try the Turkish fried-eggplant sandwich with feta and tomato sauce ($7), the perfectly roasted asparagus (if it’s in season; $6), and anything with lamb – a recent dish of Moroccan-spiced shredded lamb with lentils and harissa yogurt ($15) blew us away. The cocktail list is stellar, too – never did Bitter Tears taste so sweet.
