WHY Lebanese mezzas (small plates) galore, including creamy hummus, spicy muhammara, fattoush salad and frogs legs with lemon and garlic. Plus, it’s just steps from the Alex Theatre.
WHAT Delicious food, speedy service and an attractive décor make Carousel one of Brand Boulevard’s most reliable and rewarding dining options. Don’t miss the fatteh oberjhin (toasted pita and eggplant appetizer) and the many versions of kebbeh, Lebanese steak tartare. For main courses, there are succulent grilled kebabs (lula is excellent) and schwarma. Late on Friday and Saturday evenings, the place jumps to live music and belly dancing with a prix-fixe dinner menu.
