It’s hard to walk by Uncle Momo and not get pulled in by the smell of their kebabs. During the afternoon, this French Lebanese bistro is consumed by the mid-day hustle and whirr of an espresso machine. Things slow down at night, when couples on third dates who are about to have the “are we dating-dating?” conversation can be found chatting over the candle-lit tables. The Moroccan slow-cooked lamb tajine ranks high on our list for its tender shanks and rich, savory broth. But if you’re in the mood for finger foods, the beef shawarma or Momo Pitza (their take on pizza which includes various toppings on fresh pita bread) will not disappoint.
