Sometimes the best way to experience an unfamiliar cuisine is to defer entirely to the cook, to relinquish free will and idiosyncratic tastes and simply say "Feed me." That's the way dinner unfolds twice nightly at Mamlouk, the atmospheric Middle Eastern restaurant where the $40 six-course prix fixe menu changes daily, and where the only decision you need to make is whether to book a table at 7 p.m. or 9 p.m., the only available seatings. Dinner usually begins with great bread and terrific meze, including muhammara, a delicious walnut-pepper melange, followed by a minty fattoush salad, a tasty vegetable stew, and then two meat courses that might include anything from a Persian-style chicken with walnuts and pomegranate juice to an Iraqi lamb-and-okra dish. Factor in the wailing Middle Eastern music, the exotic furnishings, and the mango baklava dessert and mint tea, and dinner is an entirely transporting experience.


Iraq-born chef/owner Salam al-Rawi also owns the excellent Moustache restaurants.

Open seating and an a la carte menu has been added Sun., Tue.—Thu. only
