Profile

Having changed owners in the spring of 2011, this Georgian spot in the heart of Gravesend is slow to serve, but once the plates start coming out, be prepared: The Xachapuri Adjarian is a meal (or four) in itself. The bread bowl of a dish, with its warm and bagel-like dough, is overflowing with cheese topped with a melting cube of butter, and a perfectly runny egg. It’s decadent, but just simple enough that you find yourself wondering why you’ve never had it before. The Chkmeruli, or garlic chicken, is served steaming in a pot of its own butter-heavy sauce, and the fried potatoes are light, crisp, and the tiniest bit spicy. Less successful: a paltry pickle plate, a bland, over-oily platter of meat blintzes, and a dill-heavy red bean pot that may easily have just been pulled from a can. If you have room for dessert, make sure to check with the waiter what’s available: from several choices on the menu, only two were around to play.
