A kosher carnivore's Nirvana, Sabion grills, chars, sears, and skewers beef, lamb, chicken, steaks, and chops to succulent bliss. Linoleum flooring and propped tables lend little charm, but the food is what draws contemporary orthodox families and intrepid steak lovers. The excellent Moroccan cigars wrap spiced, minced beef wrapped in deep-fried phyllo, and the Mediterranean vegetable salads, with five varieties of eggplant, meet well with pita. The Jerusalem Mix of well-seasoned beef and chicken, seared and served in a cast-iron skillet, as well as the beef kabob are main-course stars, and the Eastern side dishes, like couscous with aromatic vegetables, and rice with tomato-stewed green beans or okra, outshine typical steakhouse potatoes. For tamer palates, there's a choice of ten variations on chicken, including deep-fried schnitzel. Daily specials merit extra trips, particularly the sensational lahma bi ajeen, a pita-crusted, mint-scented minced lamb Israeli pizza.Extra
Décor is questionable at best, with awful acoustics and poster-art images from the Bible, classic Hollywood, and modern Brooklyn, courtesy of a larger-than-life-sized poster of the late, beloved Lubavitcher rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson.
