I don't know that restaurant but I'll give you my two fav eggplant recipes:
1. these are very easy. you just slice 1 eggplant (your slices shouldn't be too thick; mine are always about 1,5cm - don't know how many inch that is
) , 1-2 tomatoes and mozzarella (tomato and mozzarella slices about 0,5 cm) and then you put one slice of everything on everything (eggplant/tomato/mozzarella), add some spices you like and put them in the oven for ten minutes. you can eat them hot or cold (I prefer them hot).
2. for this one you cut your eggplant(s) lengthwise and take out some of the inside so you can add a filling
for the filling I always fry garlic, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, tofu (sometimes) and half of the parts I cut out of the eggplants (the other half is for my guinea pigs
). of course you have to cut all your ingredients before you fry them. you can take as much of everything as you like. I always use A LOT of chili. you can also top these with cheese.
after you've added the filling you put a little oil in a -can't think of the word-, put your filled eggplants in it and then they go in the oven for +/-20 min
I hope you like them and if you don't understand somehting I wrote feel free to ask
