MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Cross the threshold into this breezy, elegant space—all whitewashed brick, wood-slat windows and lush greenery—and prepare to be transported to the shores of the Adriatic.

The menu boasts an array of fresh, wholesome Greek and Middle Eastern dishes, like a smoky charred eggplant spread, tempting cold mezzes and a variety of kebabs. And it should come as no surprise that these items taste as though they were prepared in a cozy home kitchen, as Ēma translates to “mother” in Hebrew. Dig into the lamb and beef kefta, a plate of perfectly grilled, skewered meat served alongside zhoug, a spicy herb and chile pepper relish. Then cool off with a few spoonfuls of delightfully tart frozen yogurt before booking your return ticket home to the Midwest.
