Lebanese surprise in Georgetown, MA

Rubee | Dec 19, 2005 01:45 PM

Went to Rockpond in Georgetown a couple of weeks ago with friends who live in the area. Had a great meal at this restaurant, where the owner/manager is Lebanese. Knew something was different when the appetizer menu lists nachos, potato skins, etc, and then at the bottom "stuffed kibbe". The menu has the usual suspects - steak tips (which were very good), pasta, etc., but the best part is the extensive Lebanese side where everything is homemade. Portions are very generous, the baba ghanoush was a huge, almost dinner-sized plate filled with the smoky eggplant dip. Served with baked pita triangles sprinkled with zatar. Two of us also split a combination plate - kibbe, grape leaves, and hummus, with a side of lebne and pita bread. Again, such a generous portion, we couldn't finish it. Dessert were two delicious cylinders of Lebanese baklava made with rose water. It was great because the "split" menu had things that appealed to everyone, the service was exceptionally friendly, and it was a nice surprise to eat such tasty Lebanese and drink wine in front of the fireplace on a cold night in Georgetown. (PS - after dinner, the margaritas made with limoncello went down easy...)
