Faz Poursohi’s success with Mediterranean food in the Bay Area may be unmatched. In this Pleasanton venture, he has added American favorites to his well-known Italian and Middle Eastern specialties. Mesquite-grilled hamburgers and a 12-ounce New York steak are solid choices, as are the various kebabs. Try the brick-oven-roasted half-chicken, served with buttermilk mashed potatoes. And what could be more American than an iceberg-lettuce salad with blue cheese? Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Also in Danville.
