This restaurant opened in 2000, and only gets better with time. In 2006, it underwent a dramatic remodel and expansion of the interior. Now with an equally large smoking and nonsmoking room, each is beautifully decorated with deep orange walls and pounded metal lamps with multicolored glass pieces dangling. What may be disturbing are the many old advertisement signs and posters with two black men. We learned that two black men from Africa had a coffeeshop here over 100 years ago, thus the restaurant's name and decor is a tribute to them. If you are in the mood for tapas, there are 13 choices. Just a couple of choices could make a complete meal. The regular menu is not extensive, but there are a number of daily specials that are imaginative. One example is the lasagna with peach and duck ragout, which we tried. The pasta layers were filled with julienned carrots, peach chunks, and leaf spinach, covered with a light duck sauce. Our other choice was the chicken breast with pesto and mozzarella with safron risotto. The chicken was moist and the risotto was al dente with flecks of parsley. The portions are very generous. We were impressed with the child special, a small portion of a menu item and a dessert. Sitting outdoors under the huge tree is relaxing and although it is on a trolleybus route, there are no fumes and little noise from the electric buses.
