When you go somewhere influenced by the Bible there're generally certain restrictions on your behavior, like having to stand up and sit down at certain points, and getting only one drink per hour, no matter how much you tip in the little basket. For one that'll let you have a better time, and the whole bottle, hit Ziba's Wine Bar.
Set in the former Solstice Cafe, Ziba's is a rustic bistro of Mediterranean meals, vinos, and hookahs, with casual hallway seating enclosed by brick and red stucco walls, plus a main dining area with a dark wood communal table, rectangular 3-D art, and a soon-to-come custom wine shelf from which to select your bottle; the name means "army" and "strength" in Hebrew, and references a biblical figure who brought food & animals to David when he ditched Jerusalem, presumably because it wasn't "real" anymore. Small bites include beef & lamb meatballs with fresh herbs & dipping yogurt, balsamic-glazed grilled quail with patatas bravas, steak "chartare" (cooked for five secs on each side) w/ red onion, capers & quail egg, and stuffed Medjool dates with Manchego, smoked paprika, almonds & hearts of celery, which like Jennifer Aniston's, are used to a good amount of snapping and crunching. Dinners range from grilled flatiron steak (w/ smashed baby red potatoes & Valdeon blue cheese compound butter), lamb chops w/ Israeli couscous, and citrus-braised baby octopus (w/ clams, fennel & yellow rice); when the bev license is cleared, they'll have a full bar featuring wines from places like Turkey, Greece, Jordan, and North Africa, from which seven reds & whites will be $7/glass and themed to match the seven wonders of the world -- drink them all if you can, ya Giza!
Things're BYOB until the drinking papers are signed; in the meantime, you can puff hookahs with seven flavored tobaccos like grape w/ mint, chocolate, or "two apples", which you can tempt your lady to try, you snake.
