Nicholas Restaurant Review

: Nicholas’ lengthy menu offers a full range of classic Middle Eastern dishes, including tabbouleh, stuffed grape leaves, hummus, saffron rice, and tender lamb kebabs. You may also taste more unusual dishes 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 sample several flavors at once. Everything is house-made, including piping hot pita bread brought fresh from the oven to your table. Portions are massive, but if you crave dessert, don't miss the baklava. The strongest drink served is mint tea. Service is professional. If take-out is your style, don't hesitate; Nicholas does a booming to-go business.

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!
