Village Voice's Description
This Syrian restaurant descended from the long-running Magic Carpet on Carmine, which was replaced by Shopsin's, and later by Market Table. The menu offers an assimilated take on Levantine food; while the bread salad fatoosh is disappointingly carbophobic, anything made with lamb will be a hit. This includes the moist, meaty lamb kebabs, but also lamb ouzi, a dome-shaped phyllo pie bulging with flavor. The plebian falafel are better than you've tasted recently, but why not spring for kibbeh balls - orotund cracked wheat fritters stuffed with lamb, pignoli, and currants. A raw version of the filling alone is recommended only for the adventurous.
Tips from foursquare
Best lentil soup
Salmon is delicious and so flavorful! Yoghurt sauce is delish.
Nice, small outdoor seating available.
try spinach pie, it's good
Delicious food but sometimes they are terribly slow. Best not to actually go there and just order.
