Susan Feniger's hypercool restaurant, in the space that once housed the coffeehouse Highland Grounds, feels halfway between a sophisticated cocktail party and a political act, hosted by people who know that roasted sweet potatoes can be a perfectly good appetizer, that every pancake deserves a little chile, and that some bottles of beer are worth $28. It is a virtual museum of world street food, with snacks and savories from every part of Asia, Moldavian meatballs and Lebanese kofta kebabs, Russian pampushki and striped bass with Pamplona chorizo. Cumin-scented millet puffs are brought to the table instead of bread and butter, and if that sounds like a good idea to you, Street, especially the section of the patio abutting the fire pit, may become your new favorite restaurant. And don't miss Feniger's parfait, a layered concoction of espresso gelatin, chocolate mousse and cream, sweetened with special halvah imported all the way from Canter's Delicatessen.
