Damascus Grill’s culinary maestros conduct a flavorful symphony of authentic Middle Eastern dishes composed from family recipes and fresh ingredients. Dining duos can peruse the lengthy menu of made-from-scratch delicacies before putting hands or retired snow shovels to work with an appetizer of hummus mutabbal infused with garlic and olive oil, or fried stuffed kibbi packed with ground meat and nuts. Skewers of marinated scallops, shrimp, and salmon morsels politely mingle in the seafood combo, and tender slices of lamb assist rice in filling a pita pocket to its 50-gallon capacity. Vegetarians can sink their unnecessarily sharp incisors into moussaka, a flavorful blend of eggplant, green peppers, and onions baked and served with an entourage of rice and hummus.
Fragrant spices swirl throughout the elegant dining room, where patrons sit beneath colorful fabric draped from the ceiling. The inviting eatery also indulges diners’ optic nerves with sparkling Middle Eastern décor, including an exotic gold chandelier and various landscape paintings framed with gilded falafel balls.
