Salam serves tasty, moderately priced classics in an inviting, low-lit brownstone. The generous entrées include couscous, stews, curries and kebabs, along with savory ouzi. If you can’t decide, order the meze meal, a satisfying variety of Levantine spreads, salads and small plates. Pair a glass of North African red wine with the elegant house finale, a gold ballotin box of Syrian dark chocolates.
