Good-Time Georgian at Brooklyn’s Lagidze

Gutsy Georgian chow—walnut-stuffed eggplant, soup-filled meat dumplings, rich egg-topped flatbreads and more—is the chief draw at Lagidze in Midwood, Brooklyn. The live music and unique décor ("late-period Georgian castle," one Chowhound writes) don't hurt.
