Despite thrilling new technology, there is still no toaster that can turn a grilled-cheese sandwich into a full Middle-Eastern meal. For $20, today's Groupon fills the belly with $40 worth of Middle-Eastern dinner fare and drinks at Fattoush, where traditional recipes and modern culinary aesthetics are blended together and colorfully arranged on a plate. This Groupon is valid for dinner only.
Fattoush hosts a sunny environment with a dining room reminiscent of an indoor Middle-Eastern marketplace and a lush patio area accented by flowers and tree branches. Start with one of Fattoush's appetizers, like the shawarma, thinly sliced seasoned lamb or chicken garnished with hummus ($10). Entrees include tabsi, which layers seasoned lamb and beef under an eggplant, onion, pepper, tomato, and garlic sauce with mild curry, dry lime, and rice ($18), and fresh mashwi, which skewers lemon cumin-marinated prawns and Alaskan halibut in the company of grilled veggies and rice ($21). Vegetarian diners can try the m'shkaleh, with layers of mushrooms, grilled eggplant, cauliflower, tomatoes, and rice served with a tomato yogurt sauce ($15).
This Groupon is valid for dinner only. Reservations are required.
- Fattoush goes for a cozy casbah look, with rows of pillowed banquettes, a tile floor and large paintings above wainscoted walls. It's welcoming in its Church Street neighborhood, especially when a foggy wind is blowing outside. – Miriam Morgan, Chronicle
