Some relatives are coming into Manhattan that I have to entertain. They are all big fans of good Middle Eastern cuisine. Unfortunately, up to this point, I haven't found many good, affordable places to take them them.
Don't get me wrong - Manhattan has a lot of cheap takeway/little ambiance places like Bereket, falafel joints, Moustache, etc. But I'm looking for an affordable (around $10 an entree if possible) and good middle eastern restaurant with some real atmosphere, ideally closer to downtown Manhattan. Any suggestions would be greately apprecated. Thanks!
