Elie's Restaurant Review

: When we’re in need of a fresh fruit juice fix, we head to Elie’s juice bar for The Energizer, a blend of strawberries, banana, honey, raspberries, pineapple, milk and ice. Or, we mix and match fresh fruits and vegetables, like apples, carrots, celery and beets for a healthy lunchtime pick-me-up. There's a bread and fresh fruit bar as well. But Elie’s, known for its sidewalk tables that are good for people-watching, also offers Middle Eastern fare. The menu lists staples like hummus, shish kebab and chicken shwarma. Chicken Diane, sautéed perch, Moroccan spiced swordfish, a large selection of vegetarian dishes, and a portobello mushroom sandwich that smacks of garlic, balsamic vinegar and white wine are available, too. Music enlivens the small space on weekend evenings during summer. The bar features Lebanese beer, wine and spirits, martinis and other cocktails.
