Hala and Sami Tabet run this mom-and-pop restaurant, serving fresh dishes from their native Lebanon. Sami has also created the Lebanese-landscape paintings and faux Greek ruins that decorate the long, narrow dining area. Spicy hummus and baba ghanouj are served with warm pita bread, and tasty entree combos such as falafel, grape leaves, moussaka, moujadara, kebbeh, snoubra, stuffed eggplant, and beef shawarma can be had with salad and hummus for less than $13. Located in the heart of Federal Hill, this is a great place to eat before an Orioles games or a night of bar-hopping.
