Mediterranean food too healthy for you? Then step into the back lounge of this restaurant/hookah bar and smoke up some fruity tobacco tar. Flavors range from the standard wildberries and melons to abstract concepts like “Tony Montana” (mixed fruit) and “Bang Bang” (who knows?). A couch rimming three walls of the tiled and lantern-hung room is as soft as sponge cake, and if you’re there on an unbusy week night, a waitress might just play a movie of your choice on the projector screen. Weekends heat up with belly dancers, D.J.'s, and Arabic musicians who sometimes bill from the Middle East. The food is better than it needs to be for a place where chasing a fake high is the main draw, with sizable mixed-grill platters and baba ghanoush as smoky as the shisha.
