Hummus Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: At this casual strip mall café, silky hummus comes with many possible toppings, such as ground beef and pine nuts, warm mushrooms or boiled egg and fava beans. It's also served with fluffy laffa bread (similar to pita). But Hummus Bar & Grill deserves mention for more than its hummus. Thin-crusted, moist-centered falafel are accented and colored with chopped parsley and cilantro, and served with tahini. Whole branzino is baked with fresh herbs and lemon, while the "Jerusalem mix" is a rich combination of chicken breast, heart and liver, with mushrooms, onions, red wine and spices. There are several grilled proteins on offer as well, like filet mignon medallions and lamb skewers. Desserts are made in-house. Malabi is a cool summer pudding drizzled with rosewater and crowned with piles of pistachios and coconut, and crème brûlée is topped with sugar-crusted banana slices. A small wine list includes a few kosher bottlings.
