Grape leaves (with meat) in the city?

Simon | Feb 17, 200412:06 PM

Does anyone know where I can find stuffed grape leaves in the city? Everywhere I've been seems to make them stuffed with rice only, which is far inferior (in my opinion) to the beef-and-rice-stuffed ones my Lebanese family makes.

I actually am fairly adept at rolling my own, but that's a whole Saturday afternoon usually, and a batch is about 75-90 strong - more than my wife and I can reasonably eat before they start to turn. So, I'd like to find somewhere I can get my "fix" between batches.

I put "in the city" in the header, but I'm willing to drive a reasonable distance. I'm also accustomed to beef and rice filling, but I've always been curious to try lamb too.

any help is appreciated. thanks.
