    Ali will wow you with hospitality. I stopped in very late(no other spot would sit you down in the neighborhood) and when asked about veg/glut-free options he wowed my party with his culinary skills.

    Awesome Lebanese specials and very friendly owner/bartender/cook. The large choice of beers compensates the absence of draughts.

    Great chill spot in Bushwick. Ali is a standup bartender/cook/owner. Awesome fries!

    Cilantro fries are bomb- a quick delicious take on Lebanese potatoes.

    Ask for the eggplant. It's not on the menu. It is delicious.
