Family-run Lebanese restaurant in River North

Our Review

When they lost their lease in Andersonville, Hermiz, Helen, and Elias Younan relocated their Lebanese restaurant to River North, taking over the old Olive Branch space. The Younans have enlarged and redesigned the space, decorating with rugs, lamps, and chandeliers from Lebanon. A row of sunken tables with traditional pillow seating lines one wall. The menu's full of dishes that were popular at the old location: hummus, baba ghanoush, shawarma, and fattoush. But instead of steamed couscous and dill rice, they're now served with fluffy white rice or bulgur. (Entrees also come with soup or salad.) "It's more like the way we eat at home," says Elias. There are a couple of specials every day. "If you're lucky, we'll have the stuffed lamb," he says.
