Aromas of fresh bread swirl through the air at La Shish, rising from ovens that crackle as they fire up soft pockets of pita. These traditional flatbreads pair naturally with the restaurant’s Lebanese specialties, which include stuffed grape leaves, hummus topped with sautéed lamb tips, and falafel made with free-range chickpeas. These shareable plates lead into entrees of ground-beef shish kafta and cabbage leaves stuffed with tender lamb. To complement the spicy flavors of its Mediterranean fare, La Shish squeezes tangy juice blends from raw oranges, apples, carrots, and beets.
