Salam (middle eastern), 13th st nr. 6th Ave

David Lerner | Nov 8, 200407:20 PM     1

About a year ago my wife and I went to Salam on 13th street just west of Sixth avenue and had a very good meal, saying we'd go back. I had the Coriander Vegetables entree, my wife had shrimp of some sort.

Somehome we never made it back until last night when we saw a movie on 13th Street. This time we had the vegetarian Maza (I know, I thought it was meze, but they call it maza). This was an assortment of appetizers for $15 per person, and was very good and a very good value. It's $19 for the version that includes meat.

The assortment included baba ganouj (delicious, smoky, garlicky), humus (way better than average), fatoosh salad (tomato, cucumber, toasted pita), yogurt with cucumber and mint, tabouleh, stuffed great leaves (served warm, some of the best I've had), some string cheese and cubes of cheese, very good falafel, spinachy little spinach/cheese pie, some little deep fried cheese filled triangles and maybe one more item I've forgotten (or not). All in all very satisfying and filling. We ate it all, but were quite full with no thought of desert. A very nice sit down restaurant with nice ambience and good service, not a fast food place. We also had a bottle of wine for about $20.

We plan to add this to our regular monthly rotation of restaurants that includes Po, Lupa, Col Legno and so on.
