THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mona's Cafe 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 space is functional, usually teeming with students from nearby universities, and the prices will put a grin on any skinflint's face. Other locations.
