Concierge.com's insider take:
Az-Zait's decor is a strange mélange of baroque and classical, with gold chairs and murals of Roman gods, but that doesn't reflect the contemporary cuisine or the informative, friendly service. Four- or eight-course tasting menus include pan-fried scallops with a tasty, wispy fennel foam. Don't miss out on the superb homemade bread (five types, including amazing tomato and basil). An extensive wine list, almost exclusively Spanish and reasonably priced, features some fine Ribera del Duero reds from the famed ten-year-old Vega Sicilia to the humbler but serviceable Emilio Moro.
Open Mondays through Saturdays noon to 4 pm and 8 pm to midnight, September through July.
