Identity Crisis, Don't Kid Me About Gelato
Ok. This was formerly, as in just days ago, Sidi Bou Cafe & Shisha Lounge. Now it's La Riviera French Crepes & Pizzeria. As you can see on the awning they offer French crepes, New York style pizza, Philly steak, gyros, panini, gelato (and if it really is gelato I'm this guy's new best friend), baklava AND hookah. Wow. This is the United Nations of food and social smoking. That expansive menu you see taped up in the window had an even greater variety of food representing almost all nations on earth. There is also a sign advertising Starbuzz tobacco for their hookah-ing operation. That's right, Starbuzz, which after doing a little research I discovered is tobacco from Virginia. I did go to this place a couple of months ago for lunch and had a really good gyro, so as long as the ownership didn't change (and I don't think it did) the food should still be pretty good. La Riviera is at the corner of Main and Adams.
