I just found this place, and I wish I'd been more alert to Bay Ridge options! It's amazing. The atmosphere is comfortable and it smells delicious. Many of the cold dishes are on display under the glass counter, but it's table service.
Rawia Bishara, the owner and chef, visited each table while we ate to see how everything was. That was a pleasant surprise.

Favorite Dish: I had never tried dandelion greens before...so good! I got the vegetarian medley so I could sample several items. There were also a couple of vegetarian specials that sounds great. My husband got a lamb dish...a huge portion!
