Sarma is the newest venture from the team behind Oleana & Sofra. Chef Ana Sortun joins Sarma Chef/Owners Cassie Piuma, and Matt Piuma in this latest collaboration. <br /><br />Sarma is a fun and funky neighborhood restaurant in the style of a Turkish Meyhane ("wine-house"). It serves casual and carefully constructed small plates (Meze), alongside a bustling craft-cocktail program. The wine list is small, and impactful, featuring only natural wines intended to compliment Chef Cassie's flavorful cuisine. Music, communal dining options, and colors abound at this new neighborhood gem! <br />

"We love North African/Middle Eastern food, and Sarma is a great place for those flavors. The pork belly was great, and many of the other dishes were very good. However, the food on this second visit was not as consistently good as on our first. The eggplant fritters could have been crispier (the surface area ratio wasn't big enough), and the clams were chewy. We were also looking forward to the circulating specials, but only one made it to our table. Also, the servers seemed overwhelmed; it seemed to us that there were only 2 (maybe 3) waitresses for the whole dining room (about 15 tables?). While it was certainly a busy Saturday night, it's not something that you would not expect for a restaurant of this caliber (and price point)."
