Bring someone you love to Marmar. We say this because during dinner you’ll inevitably brush hands while you both go to dip your pita into the muhammara. And also because it’s possible you’ll bear witness to a weekend belly dancing show. In addition to their sidewalk dining area, this Syrian spot has a big back patio with tons of hanging string lights. If you’re looking to host a small, private gathering, know that Marmar can accommodate for that too.
