Maza Restaurant’s menu of Lebanese fare simmers with charbroiled meats and kebabs pursued by free desserts on weekdays. Grape leaves ($5) awaken appetites when bundling rice, herbs, and shallots, and forks take much-needed leisure time while playing in ball pits of falafel ($4). The kitchen staff heaps mounds of rice pilaf and grilled veggies to accompany entrees such as three cuts of charbroiled lamb chops ($19). Marinated morsels of jumbo shrimp, scallops, and salmon fillet weave a thicket of flavor in the seafood couscous ($16), and charbroiled trout charms palates with citrus sauce and flakes of chopped herbs ($16).
Hosts of parties, small get-togethers, or late-night talk shows may feed guests with catering of three appetizer orders, three kebab orders, rice, and grilled vegetables ($15/person), with the optional addition of seafood ($2/person).
Inside Maza Restaurant, glass urns filled with grains of rice and a variety of herbs remind diners of the diverse array of ingredients used to construct traditional Lebanese dishes, several of which drew praise from the diners on Check, Please!. Entrees include kebabs of charbroiled meats—such as lamb, chicken, and beef—and fresh seafood, including red snapper and trout. Chefs also create an ample assortment of vegetarian dishes and sweet desserts. In addition, Maza Restaurant helps hosts feed guests during parties, small get-togethers, and late-night talk shows with their catering services.
