A lively falafel embassy in the land of borshch. Lamb kapsa (shoulder with wild rice, good for two) and shashlyk (kebab) are the specialities, but its burgers are also locally famous. Plenty of sidewalk seating or sit inside where members of the local Lebanese community play backgammon and smoke kalyan (hookahs).
