Village Voice's Description
When asked for a brunch recommendation, we often suggest Tanoreen. The Middle Eastern menu offers traditional Levantine breakfasts like vegetable fritters, hummus with meat, and fool madamas-tender fava beans dressed with olive oil, lemon, and garlic. Also brunchworthy are two dozen hot and cold mezes, including a pungent olive spread flavored with capers, the dried Armenian sausage sojuk, and sambousek-little braided turnovers filled with potatoes and peas and served with a homemade cilantro pesto sauce. Sandwiches, grilled meats, and desserts broaden the culinary terrain. And don't miss the Arabic coffee, ceremoniously served in a shiny brass pot.

A Leventine palace with ethereal hummus and baba ghanouj, eggplant napoleon, fattoush to change your world. Worth a detour.
Make reservations or go early. This is Middle Eastern food mecca. Definitely start with the hummus and tabbouleh followed by a delicious half chicken. Order lots of appetizers.
On Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Sunny Anderson recommends the Knafeh, a sweet Middle Eastern pastry, at Tanoreen in Brooklyn, NY. Find more tips at Food Network Local.
Middle Eastern meets Mediterranean at this favorite restaurant of the Daily Candy's Erin Wylie. Try the baba ganoush and make sure to sample the bread baskey for the zaatar-spiced flatbread.
The chicken tajeen is really something, , and don't forget the kunafa
