Dilemma: You want to go out for a delicious meal, but you don't want a fancy schmancy fine-dining atmosphere. (Cuz you wanna wear a tank top and jeans!) Solution: Mamou. Jon and I tried Mamou for the first time a couple weeks ago, and we agreed that we would go back for when we crave "homey dinners out." After all, Mamou's concept is "a home kitchen", with the dishes inspired by the owner's family cooking and worldly travels. I like to think of it as a upscale canteen with a comforting and welcoming aura.

Classic creamed spinach, you know how it goes.
