Those who can’t find Yemen on a map might as well just make their way here: Framed prints of the Middle Eastern nation’s green hillsides line the entranceway and dining room of this family-style restaurant, and will help you connect an image to the country. The food covers familiar native dishes—hummus and baba ghanoush—but we recommend you branch out and try the large portion of louybia: juicy white-meat chicken parts with fresh zucchini and carrots in a thick stew, served with mounds of clover-seasoned basmati rice and a platter of nan-like bread. Bring friends, push the tables together and feast.
