At Joeyness in Fort Lee, the falafel says it all. “They are beyond tasty,” attests drod, who has sampled all the leading contenders around. It’s just one highlight of the stellar Lebanese home cooking at this tiny seven-month-old shop.

Salads are fresh and tasty, like green beans lightly seasoned with olive oil, garlic, and spices; other choices include tabbouleh, dandelion greens, and several lentil variations. Hummus, baba ghanoush, and other spreads also excel; some are packaged and sold in stores.

The engaging proprietor, Joey Ghazal, encourages customers to invent custom sandwiches, which might just wind up on the menu. OffTheBroiler invites us to try his own creation, the Beirut Tour Bus: kofte kebab (herb-seasoned lamb patties) with sun-dried tomato hummus, tabbouleh, and tahini. Excellent fair trade coffee, too.
