THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Rectangles Restaurant Review

: The diverse selection of Middle Eastern dishes makes this a popular destination for young Upper East Siders. The malawach (a flatbread with dill) is a favorite here, as is the hearty chicken soup, generously made with a quarter chicken. Other main dishes include the beef goulash and the Middle Eastern meatballs. The intriguing “shakshuka” is one of the lunch specials available.
