The family of chefs at Sahara Mediterranean Cuisine assembles traditional Lebanese and Middle Eastern fare in a colorful eatery bedecked with imported rugs. The Mezza sampler taps into an array of authentic hot and cold options, both encompassing numerous vegetarian recipes. Begin with a chilled dish such as tabouleh, an alliance of parsley, cracked wheat, and tomato doused in olive oil. Sahara’s Famous Dates’ eponymous fruit signs autographs for its fan base of bulgarian feta and pomegranate reduction. Warm dishes, meanwhile, heat up tongues with carnivore-friendly fare such as chicken shawarma, marinated meat mingling with sumac, onions, and hummus. Spanakopita unites spinach, feta, and herbs under a shelter of baked phyllo dough, and hand-rolled warak dawali, like Mother Nature’s post office, ships house-made yogurt and beef or vegetables inside a grape-leaf package. Imported tapestries dangle over exposed-brick walls surrounding the restaurant’s dining area, which leads to a large window, which opens up to a patio area that awaits the first sunrays and snowman funerals of springtime.
