Profile

Located one avenue away from Bay Ridge’s main drag of Middle Eastern cuisine, this casual Syrian restaurant serves dishes that eclipse the typical falafel platter or lamb kebab. Ouzi is a visually arresting and savory domed pie, with a flaky phyllo exterior that reveals a steaming encasement of lamb, rice, nuts, raisins and vegetables. A Syrian specialty of kebbeh balls looks like oversize falafel, but the nutty, cracked-wheat crust reveals a dry, mild center of ground beef and onions that benefits from a dollop of the accompanying hummus or baba ghanoush. Sesame seed-coated falafel feature the textural knockout combination of a truly crispy exterior and a dense, moist interior. A generous portion of light, garlicky hummus comes dusted with herbs and, if you wish, topped with tender hunks of crispy-skinned lamb that may very well be the most delicious item on the menu. In the background, an endless loop of Arabic music videos plays on a widescreen TV.
