Negotiate the quirky wrought-iron-and-burlap revolving door at the entrance and you've made it into one of San José's few Middle Eastern restaurants. The Lebanese owners serve a wide variety of dishes from their native region, so if you can't decide, the mezza serves two people and gives you a little bit of everything. For your own individual dish, try the juicy shish kebab de cordero (of lamb), or, if you're feeling especially adventurous, the raw ground-meat kebbe naye (with wheat meal) and kafta naye (without wheat meal). A hip bar in the back serves the same menu. On Wednesday night there is live synthesizer music; on Thursday night check out the immensely popular 8:30 pm belly-dancing show.
