Yara Lebanese Cuisine
The scents of Mediterranean spices and sizzling meats permeate Yara Lebanese Cuisine, whose garage-door façade opens up in the warmer months. When closed, the door's glass panes allow natural light to stream into a yellow-walled dining room, where gold and red lamps hang over tables that support sandwiches, kebabs, and copper pots full of strong coffee.
In the kitchen, the cooks create those tantalizing smells by cutting lamb straight from the spit, frying crispy balls of falafel, and grilling savory kofta. To prepare the restaurant's signature lamb-shank plate, they top a juicy cut of lamb with yogurt sauce and sauteed vegetables. And while lamb is their specialty, the cooks are also experts at preparing dishes for both vegetarians and vegans in both small and large plates.
I thought the service was outstanding... attentive and friendly without being smothering.Troy F., Yelp, 4/12/13
We loved the tender lamb and the tahini-rich hummus. The baklava is fantastic.Lina J., Yelp, 5/1/13
