Sarma Boston – Middle-Eastern small plates

restaurants
Restaurants

"Sarma" is a new chef-run Boston restaurant that's all about Middle-eastern meze. My favorite from last time was the mandarin with beet tzatziki...

Everything that Oleana and Sofra founder Ana Sortun touches turns to culinary gold. This time, Ana backs chef Cassie Piuma's Middle-Eastern meze restaurant Sarma and the result is an explosion of delicious of flavors. As a dedicated patron of all three eateries, I can't recall a single instance of disappointment with the food or drinks. Sarma is the modern, imaginative, inventive avatar of Middle-Eastern cooking.

Walk into the colorful dining area through the dimly lit entrance passageway and you'll immediately feel a vibe similar to a Turkish bazaar. Tables are deliberately placed close, and the servers surprise you with daily specials as your meal progresses. Order yourself a drink and four or five mezes and begin your feast. One of my favorites from my last visit was this mandarin with beet tzatziki.

Whether you're with a group of friends or looking to impress a date, this is a place that'll treat you to something special on each occasion.
