If you're tired of mediocre Middle Eastern fare presented in less-than-appealing surroundings, Cedars Restaurant is the obvious step up. With exposed-brick walls, Persian rugs, and high ceilings, the space here reminds you more of an English manor house than a desert palace, but the food puts you in the right geographic state (not to mention gastronomic).
Cedar's Restuarnt menu is extensive, especially in the meatless area, giving vegetarians their fair share of choices. Avoid a lot of decision-making and order the "mazza," a large sampler plate. With more than enough hummus, baba ghannooj, stuffed grape leaves, tabooli and falafel for two hungry diners, this is a great way to fill up on several of Cedar's Restaurant many flavors.
If that sounds like too much food, try the fattouch salad, alive with fresh lemon and served with toasted pita bread. Craving heartier fare? Kabobs and roasted lamb fill the bill; both are done to a tender balance and served with an excellent yogurt sauce to cool off the spice.
