Although I myself, am as well traveled as you sir, I have to disagree with you on this one. Firstly, the owner is straight from Lebanon as well as his kitchen staff. His head cook and his new pastry chef as well, from Lebanon. Thier recipies are not a knock off but from thier homeland of Lebanon, which if you're well traveled you would know id quite different than that of "Jerusalem" and they would be the one's knocking off these recipies. I dont know if you ate here since the beginning of thier opening but a lot has changed and they continue to make positive changes after criticims to do thier best to accomendate what would make it better. I might try to revisit there, you may eat your words. I've never once ate anything from there that didn't far exceed mediocre and I would hate for someone to read your review and not want to at least give it try. Afterall, WESTWORD gave them the review so they must bedoing sonmething right.
