I really can't describe how fresh the food tastes. It's such a nice surprise to have a place in Brooklyn Heights where I can get falafel that reminds me of my parents' cooking.
My first time at the restaurant I ordered the salmon salad with a side of hummus and a spinach pie. It was so good that the next day, I brought my coworkers back, one of whom is a vegan and really has limited food options in Brooklyn Heights. We go to Lavatera for lunch at least once a week - it's our new gem in the neighborhood.
