Exposed-brick walls, persian rugs, and high ceilings greet guests entering the historic building that houses Cedars Restaurant, where, according to Gayot, "the food is authentic and the welcome sincere." The chefs prepare generous portions of Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine, ranging from cracked-wheat kibbeh pockets stuffed with ground meat and pine nuts to open-faced, grilled pita topped with meat, parsley, and onions. They also handcraft decadent desserts, whipping up fluffy chocolate mousses and building cabins for Abe Lincoln action figures out of almond logs.
