The food at Kismat was astounding!! The waiters there are also really nice. The recent renovation made the interior of the restaurant look nice. Kismat also has live jazz musicians play there on Friday nights. I totally recommend going there!

We've given the new bar area at Kismat a couple of tries in the past few weeks, and it's a really nice addition to the 'hood. Clean, spacious, good drinks/wine/beers at great prices, nice bartenders, and good/inexpensive bar snacks available from the main menu (...More
