- Cuisines: Eastern European, International, Fusion
Restaurateur Gibi Anghelescu's atmospheric venture (this is the younger sibling of Bistro Atheneu) seems like the work of an Arabian Nights fantasist, with brightly colored walls and plenty of silver, copper, onion-dome, and filigree motifs; the name means "having a chat" and that seems to be what the cushioned, carpeted seating areas encourage you to do. All in all, an atmospheric, fun venue where there's often live music. The kitchen changes its mind daily, and items are chalked up on a board; best to simply ask for the favored dish of the day, but do ask about the mint cod (cod cu menta), which is filleted and allowed to soak up the flavor from a bed of mint for 24 hours. La Taifas is also really good value, with a fabulous lunchtime special: L17 ($7.30/£4.55) for a three-course meal with a glass of wine (12:30-2:30pm).
