Lebanon's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Lebanon’s Café has big storefront windows to watch the streetcar rumble by, and on one wall there’s a bright mural of traditionally garbed revelers appearing to enjoy a repast. Chef/owner Hussain Sheereef's menu includes authentically prepared stuffed grape leaves, kebabs, baba ghanouj, falafel and fried kibbeh. Branch out beyond the well-known staples, however, to experience bathenjan dip (eggplant, garlic and jalapeños) or foul (mashed fava beans with lemon juice and jalapeños). All main courses include a simple but super-fresh salad and a swirl of hummus. Desserts don't go beyond baklava and burma (pistachios and honey wrapped in a crumbly crust), but with a cup of the almost semi-solid Turkish coffee, they're a nice finale to a meal. BYOB with no corkage fee, but at lunchtime, go for the refreshing Lebanese iced tea. There are a number of sidewalk tables shaded by huge old oaks.
