940 20th St. South
Casual Mediterranean food in a building that once was a Kentucky Fried Chicken and more recently a Chinese place. No alcohol served. A February 2008 review in City Scene gave high marks to hummus with sauteed pine nuts, stuffed grape leaves, shish kebabs, ghallaba (sliced chicken, lamb or beef sauteed with veggies). Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu includes "everything from quail to swordfish kabobs to burgers to mojadra, which is a sandwich filled with lentils, cracked wheat, onion and salad." Fresh-squeezed vegetable juices are squeezed to order.
