Everything tastes made from scratch at this popular local chain. Large rounds of tandoor bread are key to the experience, for scooping up everything from hummus to kibbeh. Order this to go: The “mixed for six” platter includes nine meat skewers and nine appetizers (like tabbouleh, stuffed grape leaves, and fried eggplant). Add on an extra order of the creamy labneh, a strained vogurt dip that improves just about everything. Pro tip: True confessions: we often order an assortment of Jerusalem Grill’s mezze, plate them up prettily, and serve to our socially distancing guests at a picnic table outside for a painlessly easy brunch!
