MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Everyone wants a piece of this Middle Eastern spot, exuding all the downtown feels thanks to an open-air setting. A wall of dangling greenery greets you at the entrance, and a sense of bonhomie permeates the air. Bread, in all its wonderful variations, gets a starring role here—from fresh pita to savory black sesame and buckwheat loaves. Dinner standouts include succulent whole prawns, marinated with harissa and grilled to tenderness over a blazing flame, then paired with a creamy and cooling zucchini tzatziki. Slow-roasted lamb neck shawarma is equally divine and juicy with edges seared like a great steak.
If you can exercise some restraint at dinner—and it certainly won’t be easy—save room for the delightfully rich and addictive house-made ice cream.
