Fodor's Review

There's typically a crowd waiting outside for one of the copper-top tables at this casual Middle Eastern neighborhood restaurant. The focal point is the perfect pita that accompanies tasty salads like lemony chickpea and spinach, hearty lentil and bulgur, or falafel. Also delicious is lahambajin, spicy ground lamb on a crispy flat crust. For entrées, try the leg of lamb, the juicy baby lamb sandwich, or merguez sausage sandwiches. Service is slow but friendly.

There are also locations in the East Village and in East Harlem.

A good deal

The food here is very good, and, better yet, it is very affordably priced. As Fodor's notes, it is very crowded and it is difficult to get a table at peak hours. If you're in the neighborhood, though, and have a hankering for Middle Eastern food, this is the place to go. It's the Middle Eastern equivalent of Tartine, a yummy, affordable French resatuarant in the West Village (11th and 4th), which unfortunately Fodor's doesn't review.
