7704 Third Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11209

Forced to move to a larger space in Bay Ridge to accommodate its growing popularity, this Mediterranean-style Middle Eastern restaurant run by Rawia Bishara serves home-style dishes based on her mother’s old-world recipes like ground lamb meatballs, stuffed grape leaves, and fatoush — a salad spiced with parsley, mint, and sumac. Diners can round out the meal with one of Bishara’s unique cocktails like the Nazareth Sunrise, a blend of pear vodka, orange juice, and rose water. With her daughter Jumana now manager, a warm, familial atmosphere pervades and is further enhanced by the sunny color scheme.
