Amid the Irish bars on First Avenue north of the Queensboro Bridge stands a Mediterranean tapas bar and lounge that’s more reminiscent of Beirut than Sutton Place. The modern Middle Eastern décor, with ornate hanging lamps, creates an intimate setting to enjoy the food, and there’s a happy hour that goes late (4 to 9 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday): For $20, you can get two generous tapas plates and one cocktail. The best in show is the trio of tender lamb sliders with rosemary sprigs that seem to sprout from the bun. Other memorable munchies include the housemade duck-bacon-wrapped dates, a good twist on the classic finger food. Grilled baby octopus, accompanied by a generous mixture of potatoes, olives, and tomatoes with a bold vinaigrette, is another good choice. The scent of flavored shisha smoked from elegant hookahs permeates the air as D.J.'s play Middle Eastern beats while belly dancers entertain into the evening.
