What do you do when there’s a two-hour wait at Thai Diner and your friends are so hungry that they’re starting to resent you? You go to Little Rascal. This Mediterranean restaurant has a little dining room that looks like a cross between a cute cabin and a very nice dungeon, and it’s a good option for a last-minute dinner. On the menu, you'll find small plates like dolma, grilled octopus, and crispy phyllo rolls stuffed with feta, in addition to a few basic mains like a whole branzino and kebab-style grilled chicken. The food isn’t too memorable, but it’ll get the job done if all you need is a cool-ish spot that isn’t impossible to get into. If the weather’s nice, grab a table on the sidewalk.
