With large parties, weekend DJs, and a menu of traditional fare, Déjà Vu celebrates Bulgarian backgrounds. Within its cavernous, dimly lit bar, liquor bottles hang upside down like glowing, drinkable stalactites. Happy-hour specials, which include $2 off any drink and two-for-one drink specials, are available Monday through Friday between 5 and 8 p.m. Those craving Bulgarian bites can enjoy dishes from its Mediterranean-influenced menu, such as tarator, a chilled cucumber soup common in the region ($5). For heartier hunger-havers, the kitchen cooks up its Déjà Vu Grille, where a grilled, flat meatball shares plate space with homemade skinless sausages and a red-vegetable spread ($11). Cleanse a hopeful palate with the sweet-and-savory Vesuvius, which includes honey and walnuts atop thick yogurt ($5), a veritable stratovolcano for the mouth, sans only the accompanying Roman ruins.
