THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mona's Cafe & Deli Restaurant Review

: HURRICANE KATRINA: this establishment is currently closed. For a New Orleans Travel Update as well as resources, information and help click here. Don't be surprised if, on pulling up a chair at Mona's, you detect a bit of Amman or Jerusalem in the air. The concessions to Western tastes are few in this modest but sparkling-clean Middle Eastern eatery. The traditional Middle Eastern dishes---falafel, gyros, baba ghanouj and hummus---are done with native expertise. Marinades and spices are well-composed, too. Lamb chops and kebobs, prepared with succulence and just the right char, are made with fresh, good-quality ingredients. The dining space is bright and functional, bordered by grocery shelves stocking Middle Eastern staples such as olive oil, Jordan almonds and pine nuts. And the prices will put a grin on any skinflint's face. Other locations.
