This might be in vain due to the dearth of Lebanese restaurants in Manhattan, but I have a raving craving for the symphony of taste that a good plate of fatteh bel djaje can provide. Does anyone know of anyplace, even in the boroughs, that serves? If not, perhaps a good recipe? (I'll gladly dive in and attempt to feed the need.)

Humor me here as I describe it (from the menu of the Lebanese Taverna in DC, the last place I had it): seasoned chunks of chicken on top of a layer of chickpeas and toasted Lebanese bread, served with warm yogurt sauce, pinenuts and garlic - if you're lucky, a pomegranate seed garnish.

Obviously, I'm desperate. Thanks to all and any with info.
