Dimassi's Mediterranean Buffet

This big Middle Eastern cafeteria that lets you make your own combination plate from dozens of gorgeous, vividly flavored dishes is a great idea. Choose from complex little feta cheese pies, richly caramelized eggplant laced with pomegranate, homey green beans, and tenderly braised lamb with oven-browned vegetables. They also serve your basic Levantine dips in traditional and heart-healthy versions. The prices are affordable.
