Delicious old world food in a new world hip restaurant. Cocktails, wines from Lebanon, foreign flavors, friendly staff & a take out window!
This moody room serves high end Middle Eastern fare from an open kitchen. Grab a bite at the takeaway window, a seat at the communal table for the best view of the action or sink into one of the comfortable booths in back and order the bateresh, the fried cauliflower or any of the grilled or roasted meats and you'll be glad you did..
The bateresh (charred eggplant and minced lamb) is reason enough to make your way into this inviting enclave of Middle Eastern eats. But for those on the run, you can still get that perfect blend of Lebanon and Syria cuisine straight from the walk-up 'to go' window.
Love the flavor bombs going off at this new hot spot on Capitol, the addition making this street a must-visit dining destination. Chef Garrett Melkonian isn't shy about seasoning, which means dishes are likely to stop conversation, replaced by moans of delight. If it's on the ever-evolving menu, order the braised veal shank with rhubarb, meant to be shared by two. Dare I say it? Even better than osso bucco, it's a preparation of startling depth and complexity. The housemade pita is heavenly, especially when dipped in the za'tar-spiked olive oil.
