Taza Restaurant Review: Taza offers familiar Lebanese fare --- think hummus, falafel and shish kebabs --- in an upscale, trendy atmosphere. Welcoming you at the door is a symphony of exotic aromas, followed by a well-appointed bar, a blazing brick oven and shish kebab grill, hardwoods, opulent rust-colored textiles and cylindrical, eye-catching light fixtures. A warm basket of fresh pita is a good companion while pondering the extensive menu. We suggest the citrusy fattoush salad with its mix of shredded romaine, tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, seasoned pita chips, herbs and sumac, as well as the shwarma, which layers freshly grilled beef with hummus, pine nuts, tomatoes and parsley. For dessert, Taza presents an ever-changing array of cakes and Lebanese pastries, including baklava. Libations-wise, ask the bartenders to mix up one of the specialty drinks, such as the “mango-tini,” or pick something a bit more sophisticated from the serviceable wine and beer list.
