Enjoy Mediterranean food, as it was meant to be, in a relaxed setting with family and friends at The Grape Leaf. With chef Nabil Al-Saba at its helm, this neighborhood restaurant was one of the first in the city to offer authentic Middle-Eastern cuisine, and remains a popular choice for classic, Mediterranean staples like hummus, fatoush, lentil soup, tagines, shawarma, vegetable mousaka and succulent, grilled kebabs. The food is as it should be - fresh, flavorful and cooked with a whole lot of love. The restaurant itself is delightfully simple, with a spacious patio for alfresco dining.
The menu at Café Lou Lou consists of a wide variety of dishes like Hummus Trio, Chef Clay's Famous Gumbo, Blue Cheese Polenta, Shrimp and Grits and Four Cheese Calzone, obviously reflecting a New Orleans influence while giving plenty of representation to Italian and Mediterranean dishes. If you come here in a group, you can also try out a couple of their delicious gourmet-quality pizzas. A variety of wines are available to go along with the meal as well as zippy cocktails and bourbons. The exposed brick walls, bright posters and cozy seating arrangements makes this branch of the restaurant perfect for a family meal.
