Think of this place as a Middle Eastern rip-off of Chipotle—a description that gets more apt with every location this mini-chain opens. Diners wait in line, choose between eating a sandwich, salad or “Mediterranean plate,” pick a protein (chicken, steak, falafel) and then smother the stuff in sauces. You can get crazy with that last act, bogging down your lunch with slaw, hummus, olives, aioli and the like. But for best results, we recommend keeping it simple (two or three toppings; one sauce), and ending with the surprisingly decent chocolate chip cookie.
