The chef behind Malakeh has hosted a cooking show and catered for former Chancellor Angela Merkel, but the main star of this place is the excellent Syrian food. The menu, with a long list of appetizers and even more mains, can seem overwhelming, but we just go straight for the fattet makdous: a stuffed, roasted, and fried eggplant that’s cooked in tomato sauce, covered in yogurt, garlic, and tahini sauces, and topped with nuts and pomegranate seeds. Keep the party going with the shish belfakhar, a dish of spiced, grilled chicken, potatoes, and mushrooms with cheese under a golden bread topping. While the hanging lanterns and black-and-white portraits make the interior feel homey, on sunny days you should grab a table in their front outdoor seating for a side of people-watching with your stuffed vine leaves.
