The service is peculiar and the droning music even weirder at Mecca Grill, a mini-mall storefront with a saffron-stained dining room. But the food -- herby falafel, hummus, gyros, lemony fattoush, shawarma, kabobs and grape leaves -- is undeniably good. The best dish: the bold-flavored lamb shank, an extravagantly huge hunk of meat that arrives propped against a mound of fluffy rice scented with Mideast spices and submerged in a pungent soak of lamb-y juices, garlic, spices and tomatoes sweetened with carrots. This is an animalistic abundance that you'll wake up dreaming about -- and craving -- at 2 a.m.
