What You'll Get
The chickpea is the backbone of man’s greatest culinary inventions: falafel, hummus, and the after-dinner mint. Salute the garbanzo bean's delicious versatility with today's Groupon for Lebanese fare at Bostaan in Warren. Choose between the following options:
• For $15, you get $30 worth of Lebanese fare during dinner.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of Lebanese fare during lunch.
Bostaan's chefs craft flavorful meals with a menu strewn with garlic and olive oil, fresh greens, and grilled or sautéed meats. Foliage enthusiasts can feast on the grape-leaves dinner, which comes with a choice of lamb or vegetable and a side of yogurt ($11.99), or devour the falafel sandwich, an enticing array of chickpeas, fava beans, and vegetable patties bundled with veggies and tahini sauce ($3.75). For lighter fare, order a regular-size tabbouleh salad and attempt to discern its individual parts—parsley, tomato, scallions, cracked wheat, olive oil, and lemon ($4.95).
Bostaan also serves up a bevy of raw juices such as the Cobra, a health-inducing mix of carrots, oranges, beets, radishes, apples, and extract of body builder ($3.75). Finish off with a multileveled baklava ($2.99) in one of Bostaan’s cozy booths while making plans to use the restaurant's purple ceiling drapes to swing over to another table and steal bites of someone else's meal.

Lebanese cuisine, with its blend of fresh vegetables, spiced meats, and infusions of garlic and olive oil, strikes a happy balance between healthfulness and flavor appeal.
