Nicholas Restaurant Review

: Nicholas’s lengthy menu offers a full range of classic Middle Eastern dishes, including tabbouleh, stuffed grape leaves, hummus and kebabs. You may also taste more unusual items such as kibbeh, a loaf made with bulgur, lamb and pine nuts; Lebanese lasagna, which combines chicken, cream sauce and three cheeses; or a mix of pickled eggplant, crushed walnuts and herbs. Meze platters in meat, vegetarian or vegan versions let diners try several flavors at once. Everything is house-made, and piping hot pita bread is brought fresh from the oven to your table. Portions are massive, but if you desire dessert, order the baklava. If take-out is your style, don't hesitate; Nicholas does a booming to-go business. The strongest drink is mint tea.

Amazing Mazza Plate!

Vegetarians and vegans will fill right at home at this amazing Lebanese restaurant that serves up the freshest, hotest bread and smoothest hummus in all of town. Be prepared to wait and also to be amazed!
