Cafe Pita+

51. Cafe Pita +
Exuberant, rustic Bosnian cooking is the draw at this west-side restaurant, recently relocated to bigger quarters nearby. The house-baked puffy pita loaves (lepinja) set an elevated tone for festive appetizer platters of cured meats, vibrant spreads and three kinds of pickled peppers. It’s hard to go wrong here, whether it be the robust lamb shank, stuffed cabbage or sandwiches of cevapi (sausage links) or pleskavice (spiced ground beef turned into a sort of manic cheeseburger). Don’t miss the marvelously flaky pastries called bureks, stuffed with spinach and house-made cheese or sumptuous potato and onion. Modest prices are amplified by the BYOB policy.
