Cedar's Restaurant Review

: On busy restaurant row, Cedar’s is rarely packed, but the patrons know authentic Lebanese cuisine and come from miles around to savor garlicky hummus, tabbouleh, and deep-fried falafel and stuffed grape leave. Our favorite entrées include kibbeh bi laban, balls of ground meat and cracked wheat cooked in yogurt; and bemieh, a rich dish of stewed okra, tender lamb, cilantro and garlic in an aromatic tomato sauce. Friendly, efficient service and a spotless dining room make the meal a pleasure. Less-adventurous palates will enjoy shwarma beef, grilled jumbo shrimp, or the simple chicken skewers served with rice and vegetables. We could make a meal just from the hot and cold appetizers, from smoky baba ghanouj to homemade sausages sautéed in lemon juice --- all served with freshly baked pita bread. If you want to see the talented belly dancer, make plans to dine Saturday night after 9 p.m., the only time there's a show --- and the only night you might need a reservation.
