Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to falafel. Get a sailor's worth of chickpeas with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Middle Eastern dinner cuisine at Leila in West Palm Beach. Dinner is served from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday–Thursday, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
Leila’s couscous-covered menu sprouts authentic Lebanese and Syrian fare, artfully prepared for sumptuous dining in a warm, lively setting. Its signature dinner entree, the shish tawook, charms taste buds with a king-worthy chicken breast crowned with lemon zest and a garlic-and-olive-oil marinade ($22). Seafood seekers can occupy their mandibles with the samak mishwee, which anchors levitating tables with a hefty slab of mahi-mahi in tangy citrus taratoor sauce ($25). The meatless falafel salad touts crispy, spiced chickpeas resting on romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and radish topped with sesame-tahini dressing ($10). Outside dining options keep wall-o-phobes from choking on fear or hastily swallowed hookahs, and belly dancing wiggles its way into mealtime schedules on Friday and Saturday nights.
