If you don’t feel like splurging at Mombar, head a few doors down to the pint-size Kabab Café. The food is just as delectable, but cheaper and less gussied-up. Cheerful proprietor Ali el-Sayed wants you to be happy; start on your way with velvety baba ghanoush (studded with apples for a sweet twist) and eggeh, a golden-brown egg fritter. Logs of ground lamb and beef kofta are well-spiced, and the classic moussaka is a hearty vegetarian option.
