Sahara Lebanese Cuisine Restaurant Review: This intimate, authentic Lebanese eatery uses recipes based on time-honored family dishes, so the cooking appeals to foodies who really want decent home-cooking, but not fast food. In that vein, the menu is structured to present a lunch buffet plus standard items of spinach- or cheese-filled pastries and stuffed grape leaves to start and entrées like chicken shwarma and a gyro platter with fattoush, tabbouleh and hummus. Classic Mediterranean desserts --- think baklava --- conclude the meal. The hookah lounge has its own telephone number (703-421-8251).
