The Purple Martin
A mix of sleek, brightly colored stools and weathered wooden tables creates a rustic, yet modern look inside The Purple Martin. And a mix of new and old is exactly what guests can expect from the executive chef, whose creative bistro dishes often incorporate traditional Mediterranean spices and flavors. The signature house dish is a Tunisian chickpea stew called lablabi. Chefs ladle cups of it atop a slice of bread, which soaks up the rich flavors of savory garlic and cumin broth, and top the bowl with a poached egg. For lighter dishes, chefs toss sprigs of arugula with purple beets and orange slices before drizzling the entire mixture in a North-African vinaigrette. They also shave off thin slices of seasoned lamb to tuck into doner kebabs or inscribe with secret messages marked "eat after reading."
