Cedars Restaurant Review

: Twinkling brass fixtures light this pleasant Middle Eastern spot, where the food is authentic and the welcome sincere. A favored appetizer is a mixed platter of hummus, tzatziki, taramosalata, dolmates, octopus, feta and olives, and if you are still hungry, there is moussaka, shwarma combinations, kebabs or falafel. Naturally, there are salads, and vegetarian dishes such as roasted eggplant or an omelet filled with labni are plentiful. Uncommonly, salmon and tuna are available, and all the yogurt is low-fat. Try the samke hara---salmon baked with tahini, cumin, onion and pine nuts, with grilled potatoes. With your Lebanese coffee, you can have some very sweet phyllo and nut pastries or a chocolate mousse. Cedars is from the same family behind Fez and Byblos.
