You have to know where you’re going to find Ahvali BYOB—it’s unlikely you’d just stumble upon new eatery. But that’s exactly why customers like the hidden gem. Its modestly sized dining room means you receive exceptional customer service, and you’ll never encounter a huge crowd.
Since Ahvali opened in September, it’s already started to generate buzz for its weekend brunch. Dig into a stack of its signature lemon-ricotta pancakes capped off with agave-honey yogurt, a mixed berry compote, and a drizzle of maple syrup. Try the French toast filled with bananas, strawberries, and peaches. Or enjoy a savory dish such as the Ahvali Benedict, a pair of poached eggs perched atop a cake of crab and shrimp meat, served with spinach-tomato tapenade, brioche bread, and a roasted garlic cream sauce. Ahvali BYOB also serves dinner on Fridays and Saturdays.
