My favorite new place on this trip

There are a handful of ethnic restaurants in Venice; this is the first one I've tried and I'm so glad I did. Frary's is right across from the Frari church; it's a Middle Eastern/Greek/Lebanese restaurant with a great menu. Lots of vegetarian choices though it's not a strictly vegetarian place. Very cozy with nice murals on the wall and a lovely owner; I really enjoyed talking to her.

I got the lunch special - two courses plus water and coffee for 12 Euro. Started with falafel, hummus and pita (all great esp. the falafel) and then had the vegetarian coucous which came with this spicy tomato sauce on the side. Then "caffe arabo" which is basically an espresso with cardamom and rose water in it. Delish. The owner gave me a complimentary digestif, some kind of Greek brandy, and that was very tasty too.

Anyway, this was my favorite new place on this trip. Loved everything about it and will definitely go back!
