Lebanese Restaurant
$$
“Suraya landed on our Top 50 Best New Restaurants last year, and remains one of our favorite stops for Lebanese breakfast. I always fill the whole table with a mezze plate, an order of hummus (with lamb or mushroom), the kafta kebab plate (the fries are seriously some of the best I’ve ever had), and something from the long list of man’oushe (flatbreads), like the tomato and kishik or the za’atar and cheese. If this doesn’t sound like breakfast to you, it’s about time you get on board.”
