Mouthwatering scents from traditional tagines trickle through the horseshoe arches of this Moroccan eatery, offering olfactory hints at dishes served up à la carte and family style. Make a bold beginning with a bastilla appetizer, a bastion of Moroccan fare filling thin phyllo dough with chicken or vegetables ($14.99, $24.99 for medium). Next, sink teeth into entrees of vegetarian and meaty varieties, such as the lamb tagine with raisins and almonds in a sweet sauce ($15.99) or vegetable-studded couscous ($12.99). Families, friends, or barbershop quartets can feed on Fez's family-style feasts, which include soup or salad, a bastilla, a tagine or couscous, dessert, and Moroccan mint tea (starting at $46.99). The bistro's bar is open late on weekends to accommodate nocturnal noshers.

At Fairouz Cafe, waiters ameliorate appetites with a menu of classic Middle Eastern dishes. Hummus bel-shawarma ($9.95) jump-starts eating engines with a serving of hummus topped by slices of beef and lamb, created by cracking a meat piñata over the plate. The chicken kebab platter unites marinated, boneless chicken cubes with rice ($11.95), and the falafel sandwich corrals fried chickpea patties into bellies ($5.95). Combo appetizer plates such as the yogurt salad with diced cucumbers ($3.50) or the shakshouky, an eggplant salad with diced tomatoes and pomegranate extract ($5.95), juxtapose simple ingredients to accentuate their flavor, much like PB&J sandwiches or barbershop quartets with one rapper. Escort meals to hunger-vanquishing glory on a cascade of nonalcoholic beverages such as juices and smoothies ($4.50) or a toasty pot of Turkish coffee ($3.95). During meals, diners can enjoy the smoky flavors of a hookah (not included with this Groupon), soak in live or DJed music, observe the sensual stylings of a belly dancer, or keep up with sports on wall-mounted televisions.

Charcoal-heated grills sear hearty kebabs of halal meats at Afghan Kabob House, flooding the restaurant with the scents of roasting chicken, lamb, and beef. To accompany the skewers, cooks toss together leafy salads, bake pillowy naan in a tandoor-style oven, and unite seasoned rice with saffron or carrots and raisins. The menu also boasts 20 different flavors of shisha for its hookahs, which encourage diners to lounge around after their meal and practice forming the perfect ring or Möbius strip out of smoke.

Maté specializes in creating original sushi rolls with a Latin twist ($8–$15). The restaurant's novel nibbles include the Buenos Aires roll, a combination of jumbo lump crab, torched salmon, and tempura crunch; the Tamalito roll, a sweet and spicy mélange of yellowtail jalapeno, avocado, plantain, and corn masa wrapped in daikon skin; and the Mar del Plata roll, a cornucopia of lobster, cucumber, soy nori, chives, and avocado. Maté boasts a selection of seven ceviches, cooked with citric acid to heat-free perfection ($10–$17). For Asian-influenced Asian fare, select one of the restaurant's traditional sashimi, maki, or nigiri options. While relishing rolls or sipping sake from the sleek aluminum bar, diners can luxuriate in Maté's elegant atmosphere or try to blend in with the crimson décor by sharing embarrassing stories about email typos.
