|Pork Chop w/truffles & mash potatoes|
We were two couples and we each began the meal with an inviting, interestingly spiced, large bowl of gaspacho (@ $8) which proved a great starter for this outing and what would come next ... and after that! (I highly recommend the gaspacho and would opt for it again if it happens to remain on the menu.) Two of us, next, had selected the pork chop with truffles & mashed potatoes ($16) ... which proved very tender & very tasty, an enjoyable dish reflecting a harmoniously constructed "take" on a somewhat traditional theme. My wife chose the liver & onions ($16) entree with snippets of bacon bits atop the veal liver; also a nicely prepared plate reminiscent of yet another (traditional) hardy theme. The 4th entree that arrived was an interesting amalgam of foie gras & rabbit pate (@ $18), a country French dish that, in terms of the natural blend of the two major components, metamorphosed into, well, none other than an epicurean delight!
Coupled all around with cups of rich & robust black coffee, we ended our "school cafeteria" visit with a dessert suggested by our waiter: an extra large "bowl" of raspberry-inflected creme brulee ($15) which we four shared.
Indeed, both the creme brulee & the resto, itself, scored a solid hit with the four of us.

|Those fluffy pitas!|
Best of all, perhaps, are the unusually thick & fluffy pitas you will surely consume & strategically apply to remnants of anything accidentally left on your plate!
Simply do yourself a favor & give Hummus Place a try when next you're in the neighborhood!
