This bustling Israeli spot shows a breadth and attention to detail not found in comparable nonkosher Middle Eastern restaurants around town. A nest of frizzled onion may top the rice of the day mixed with lentils, the plump kibbe carries a waft of baking spice, and the equally chubby kefta are juicy and ground with bits of bright green chopped parsley. Pita sandwiches and skillfully grilled meat plates are huge, but the prices, due to the costs of kosher certification, are daunting. The heady aroma of frying falafel that perfumes the tight parking lot is, however, free. BYOB beer or kosher wine only.
