I am a huge sucker for grilled eggplant; of my many favorite foods, it's definitely up there. So at tbsp, I was happy to order the Mediterranean panino ($8.25), which features grilled eggplant, haloumi cheese, basil leaf, and lemon-artichoke pate. Haloumi cheese is always intriguing—mild, a little on the chewy side, and squeaky between the teeth. When eaten with the creamy grilled eggplant, the cheese came to life. The basil leaf wilted in the heat of the sandwich and lent its herbiness nicely to the overall bite. The bread was outstanding—hefty, chewy, and well-toasted. When parts of my sandwich began to fall apart, I began devouring the bread alone, which had absorbed flavors of lemon, basil, and savory eggplant-ness. Delicious.
