Lebanese Butcher Report

Eight Chowhounds got together yesterday for a very satisfying lunch at this NoVa restaurant attached to a butcher shop. Although I liked all of it, certain items were so good I seriously thought about going back for dinner.

For starters we had:
Hummos, baba ganouj, fettoush salad, taboulleh, mini-sausages, kibbeh, foul

And the main courses were:
lamb ouzi, chicken fatteh, soujouk (sausage), lamb shawarma, and roast quail

Everyone delighted at the fried pita chips that are customarily part of the fettoush and the chicken fatteh - these were well above what we've come to expect at other Lebanese. Add to those the juicy mini-sausages, the crispy kibbeh, and the shawarma - and I know I'm heading back as soon as I can.
