Food & Drink: Dediko’s fare is meant to be shared

Ella Bakh, owner of Dediko, prepares Georgian food with the heart of a chef and the eye of a florist. She serves kompot (fruit juice) in individual mason jars to show off cherries, strawberries and sliced plums bobbing around the bottom. She serves churchkhela, a traditional Georgian sweet made from grape juice, nuts and flour, in elegant petals instead of the long tapered, candle shapes that they can be found in her hometown of Tbilisi. Her Georgian Dip Tour with pkhali (dips) made from fresh vegetables, herbs and walnuts, served with a sampling of Georgian cheeses and lavash bread, is jewel box of colors.

Bakh hopes that customers will share their meals as Georgians do.
