Small Middle Eastern grocery and restaurant that serves terrific lamb kebabs, kibbe, and baba ghanouj, as well as baked treats like baklava and crisp cookies filled with dates. Dining area is limited, but romantic, with a mural of Bethlehem on one wall, and a TV set hanging from the ceiling showing belly dancing. Grocery features everything from Jordan almonds and candy-coated chickpeas to a vast array of spices, and a deli with at least a half-dozen types of olives. Along with the canned and dry goods for sale are religious figures carved from olive wood, and blue glass talismans to ward off the evil eye. A cool little shop, like stepping into another world.
