Fareground, the classiest-looking food hall in Texas, has a new tenant, the Israeli outlet TLV. (It’s an offshoot of the now-closed food truck Hummus Among Us, and the initials stand for the airport serving Tel Aviv.) Pop in after 7 a.m. (9 weekends) for savory Balkan-style pastries or breakfast bourekas, hand-size phyllo-pastry pies filled with meat and potatoes. There are also elongated, sesame seed–encrusted Jerusalem bagels and great cardamom-spiked Turkish coffee. At lunch or dinner you can try salads, pita sandwiches, and assorted plates. Chicken-thigh tenders—gently spiced with cumin- and turmeric-rich hawaij—arrive on a bed of velvety hummus drizzled with olive oil and adorned with dabs of cilantro-pumped tahini. A side dish of tender Moroccan-spiced carrots adds color and spunk.
