    Unless you're crazy hungry you don't need more than 3-4 mezze for 2 people, portions are generous

    You can't go wrong with the TUNA BELLY. Follow up with the lamb leg or the yogurt gnocchi:)

    Great food (brussel sprouts, shrimp, kibbeh, duck schwarma). Lebanese wine wasn't too great though.

    <3 the Brussels sprouts. You can order the chicken kebab with white meat only (if that's your thing).

    Food is great. Loved it. Had some middle eastern Egg Benedict. Yummy! One down side my dish came out 10 after my friends - not so good, but got a 20 discount.

    The Venetian lemonade has a very sweet grape flavor - very memorable. As was the bone marrow!

    The brussels sprouts are the stand out dish from the whole menu. They’re sweet, savory, unique, and overpriced— much like the rest of the menu.

    When in front of the royal duck shawarma, chickens and lambs would commit suicide.

    Ask for Mark as your waiter- he was beyond awesome! Also, if you're gluten free, there are plenty of options.

    The brussel sprouts are unique but very rich. Falafel was divine! Perfect crunch, not oily. Hummus lacked a bit of salt, duck schwarma was overhyped. Slightly dry, nothing special.
