    Get the roasted carrots- which are roasted in olive oil until they're caramelized and creamy, and then dressed with a bit of pomegranate molasses and a shower of cilantro.

    The Tuscan establishment's take on the classic Lebanese chicken sandwich is an interesting contrast to its Bay Ridge and Astoria counterparts, but is as every bit as snappy and memorable.

    The porchetta was a disappointment. The bread was super hard and not enough crackling. Meat and bread's porchetta sandwich is way better. Go to Vancouver and try it!

    The Lebanese Pressed Chicken Sandwich is roasted, sliced and slathered with toum, an intense spread of garlic, olive oil and salt. Pressed and topped with pickles, it evokes a Cubano by way of Beirut. Read more
