Petra is from the same people behind Sunrise/Sunset, a little cafe in Bushwick with a surprisingly good wine selection. And in terms of wine, it’s the same deal here. You can drink something from Slovenia or a Croatia and eat plate of sabich alongside. The food at Petra is Mediterranean, although it isn’t really traditional. The sabich is deconstructed, and they do a plate of charred broccoli with peanut butter and jelly. We probably wouldn’t eat a full meal here, but it’s a great place to drink wine with a date.

Barbounia is definitely not our jam. It’s way too expensive for what they’re serving, and the grandiose and gaudy decor makes it feel like some sort of vaguely Mediterranean performance hall. Like at any moment one of the bus boys might start juggling.
