    Delicious cozy spot. For groups of 3+, I recommend the Mezze Supreme which is a combo of 8 mezzes. Great choice as the portions are big & you can savor many different mezzes. The Ashta dessert is A++.

    pitza's are real interesting and different, lots of choices for vegetarians (if its your first time, get the veggie tasting platter). They also serve a tiny complimentary baked bread+zaatar - delish

    Food was great & our large party was treated very well. Small place but they never rushed us. We had a lot of dietary restrictions at our table, but everyone could find options that worked for them

    Definitely go for the chicken shawarma. House dressing for salad is excellent. Service leaves something to be desired.

    The service is terrible. Rude, slow and they even argue if you complain and tell you "sorry it wasn't me. Must be another employee"!

    Sweet lunch deal at balade (east Mediterranean at 1st ave and 12 street). $10 for app, sandwich entree and dessert. (Or $12 for choice of pitza instead of sandwich).

    The lentil soup is delicious and more bitter than a 35 year old unmarried Manhattan women. Like I said, if you like bitter go Lentil...you certainly deserve it
