You won’t have the best food or big portions at Ilili, a Lebanese restaurant on the Wharf, but you will find yourself transported to a seaside Mediterranean villa. When you walk inside, you’ll make your way past trees and bird cages, a spewing water fountain, and blue, hand-painted ceramic tiles—a stunning display of design that can only be described as a magical indoor-garden wonderland. If you go, the duck shawarma is the clear menu standout. It comes with a garlic sauce and pomegranate seeds that gives the dish a punch and the perfect contrast in flavor.
