THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sahara Grill Restaurant Review

: It’s all flash on the outside. Indoors, find a cafeteria-style restaurant that serves primarily Lebanese foods (chef Hassib Alaoui’s worked at Lebanese Taverna). Head to the line and start with appetizers such as hummus and baba ghanouj. The kibbeh hamis is luscious, though the lamb kebab was a little less so. Try the chef’s specials, sambosick (meat pie) or fattaer spanigh (spinach pie). The desserts are fresh and tempting, especially the baklava. However, unlike at some other kebab places, the bread is not tandoor-baked.
