Eating international fare locally eliminates the woes associated with transatlantic travel, such as jet lag and oar splinters. Stamp your palate’s passport with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mediterranean fare at Salma Farah's Mediterranean Restaurant.
The classic starters, salads, and sandwiches of Salma Farah's menu evoke the authentic tastes and spices of the Mediterranean region. Savory hummus mingles chickpeas with lemon juice and olive oil ($7.50 for a regular), and rolled grape leaves stuffed with rice and ground beef travel in packs of 12 ($7.95), just like marauding eggs. Sandwiches and wraps ($8.95) don a variety of savory coatings, such as the gyro’s creamy tzatziki or the chicken shawarma’s nutty tahini. While munching on grilled lamb and shrimp kebabs ($11.95), guests can BYOB with no corkage fee, creating an atmosphere as inviting and affable as a bear-hug tournament.
Salma Farah's Mediterranean Restaurant
The chefs at Salma Farah's Mediterranean Restaurant stick to the culinary traditions of the sun-steeped Lebanese and Syrian shores. Kebabs sizzle as they pour tzatziki across gyros and rolled grape leaves. Garlic and eggplant roast aromatically, bound for bowls of hummus or baba ghanouj. Steam rises from earthy, dark Arabic coffee near fatayers—baked pastries consisting of dough rolled around spinach or meat. The BYOB policy lets guests bring in their favorite vintage without having to pay a corkage fee or watch a clumsy waiter try to impress everybody with his unicycling skills when delivering bottles.
