Kosher Israeli grill serves vegetable and protein skewers (including chicken, lamb, beef, chicken livers and sweetbreads). All entrées come with small ramekins of salads (think curried chickpeas; marinated red cabbage; and balsamic marinated mushrooms).
This friendly and elegant Lebanese staple has a large, sunny patio that beckons lunch and dinner patrons outside when the weather is good to try garlicky hummus, stuffed grape leaves, chicken kabobs, veal chops, and dozens of small-plate dishes.
An elegant alternative to the run-of-the-mill kabob places dotting the Pike, Sadaf is pristine with lace curtains and glass mosaic tiles in front. In addition to kabobs, it offers Persian curries and fish dishes.
