In some ways, this will be a pretty easy review since others have already done a really good job getting photos and the backstory of this new spot on Madison – Kismet Mediterranean Grill.

Innovo has placed this into the spot they had before with pasta dishes in the Market. There does seem to be turnover in a few of the spots here with seemingly 2 or 3 empty stalls on a recent weeknight.
