There are just a few stools at this miniscule East Village café, where Blue Bottle alum Jamie McCormick brews coffee straight into each mug. Out of a tiny kitchen, chef-partner Elizabeth Quijada turns out daily-changing sandwiches made with Sullivan Street Bakery’s crusty olive oil-coated stecca.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Near the nightlife district of Monot, this stylish restaurant serves some of the city’s best Lebanese food. In the glass-fronted room and on the terrace, guests dine on impeccable renditions of dishes like tabbouleh and grilled kebabs. The restaurant offers a strong list of local and international wines and arak, a potent pastis-like anise spirit.

We loved: —layered dishes of garlic-spiked yogurt, grilled meat or vegetables, fried bread and pine nuts.
