Loopers have wasted no time swarming this Middle Eastern joint, which offers a quick, assembly-line operation not unlike Chipotle. Perhaps appropriately, the restaurant’s signature item, a Lebanese roll, looks like a Chipotle burrito. Here, the pitalike bread is filled with beef shawarma, kefta kebab or falafel, all packing a peppery punch. You can get those same items in a salad, if you want, or on rice. But for us, the roll is where it’s at, and the only reason to forsake it is for the vegetarian plate, which has more of that spicy falafel, plus some smoky baba ghanoush to tame it.
