One of the best homegrown restaurants left on lower State Street. Lovingly homemade Middle Eastern and Mediterranean specialties; look for daily specials like couscous stews, mousssaka, bourak and more. Even a simple hummus-and-pita wrap, falafel sandwich or cup of avgolemono soup will put a smile on your face. However, it's only open for lunch. Accessible, but narrow for wheelchairs. $2-$9.
