With the rare exception, the venerable Al Bustan among them, Lebanese restaurants in New York tend to come in the guise of the falafel joint—quick and cheap rather than elegant and upscale. The cavernous Ilili aspires to greater things. Chef-owner Philippe Massoud, late of Neyla in Georgetown, has concocted a menu that melds traditional Lebanese and modern Mediterranean flavors, covering territory both predictable (hummus, baba ghannouj, tabbouleh) and newfangled (duck shawarma with fig puree, and green onion). The bi-level space itself is divided into multiple lounges and dining areas, and is meant to be high on atmosphere, with a D.J. spinning weekend nights.
