Al Masri Restaurant Review

: In a city known for every kind of fusion and ethnic food, this Egyptian restaurant with a comfortable bar, alluring décor and belly dancing stands out. All the usual suspects are here --- hummus, baba ghanouj, tabbouleh and falafel --- but with Egyptian seasonings. Order a platter of those delightful appetizers to kick off your meal. For an entrée, choose from filet mignon, minced prawns or kebabs; they’re paired with a noodle-rice side dish and interesting vegetables. Dessert pastries are flavored with honey and rosewater. Sunday night dinners are all-you-can-eat buffets featuring a selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes along with fish, lamb and poultry plates --- and desserts, too.
