Cafe Malta

This eclectic Mediterranean-inspired joint might not be on the radar of folks who live north of the river, but it should be. Despite rave reviews of the house-made pasta, brisket ravioli, and unusual desserts (chocolate chili créme brûlée, anyone?), this 3-year-old shop has yet to shake off its best-kept-secret status. Pro tip: Go for lunch and enjoy high-end plates at a reasonable price point.
