The Phoenician Restaurant: A taste of Lebanon
The Phoenician is a relatively new (since 2007) Lebanese restaurant on Broad Street. Lee Mitchell took me here for my birthday. The restaurant is really well decorated. The service is attentive and prompt. The prices are reasonable enough that it doesn't have to be a special occasion to eat out here. They're open for lunch and supper Monday through Friday; supper only on Saturday and they're closed on Sunday.
Favorite Dish: Like many Mexican restaurants serve complimentary tortilla chips, the Phoenician serves pita bread. To start, I had the tabouli which is a traditional Lebanese salad prepared with fresh parsley, tomatoes, diced onions, crushed wheat, fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, and onion. For the main meal I had chicken schwarma which is grilled marinated chicken breast sliced thin, served with rice pilaf green, beans served with tomatoes and olive oil, and tahini sauce. The chicken was very tender; the rice was very good; and, second to the traditional Southern way, I like this way of preparing green beans the best.
