Just a few blocks down from Sanctuaria in the Grove, Joyia plays fast and loose with the term "tapas," but we're not complaining. Things here cover the Mediterranean to the Middle East to North Africa with an extensive menu. A standout dish perfect for sharing (or not) is the chorizo rollos: phyllo filled with sausage, potato, black beans, red onion and kasseri cheese and then topped with a charred tomato-chile salsa. Or, try something more adventurous like the Moroccan lamb tagines.
