Nour Mediterranean Cafe
The scent of grilling lamb, beef, and chicken filters throughout the dining room of Nour Mediterranean Cafe, hinting at marinades, garlic, and herbs. Other Mediterranean staples shine, from the olive oil sprinkled across the pita bread to the yogurt sauce, hummus that drape gyros, and the nour sauce and hot bread. The chefs also twist together stuffed grape leaves, roast eggplants for baba ghanouj, and dice herbs for tabbouleh. Baklava bakes to an even gold in the kitchen, and cups of turkish coffee keep patrons awake through slideshows from a boss’s vacation at the mattress store.
