If North African food is the most underexplored Mediterranean cuisine in Boston, this tiny, inviting storefront is the corrective. The “Ultimate Vegetable Platter” is essential; also check out the decent skewered entrées and inspired desserts. Fans twirl overhead; the waitstaff is one guy; the chef pops out to chat.
