Misguided first-timers might be surprised by the lack of Oriental food and surplus of Mediterranean ingredients here; it's actually a Middle Eastern market and restaurant. You'll find loose-leaf teas and olive oil soaps sold alongside Persian desserts and authentic meat pies. In the back is a small restaurant serving up an assortment of traditional dishes, like tender shawarma and crispy falafel. Vegetarians have a bounty of meatless options to choose from too—from kibbeh to grape leaves to salads. Make sure you save room for a piece (or two!) of the homemade baklava.
