Mazar is a multi-faceted, family-run café with a big back patio where people can blaze up hookahs, plus a dining room with mottled walls with 3-D stonework, frescoes and wine imagery. Their vegetarian combo platter is in no way unique to Mazar – you’ll find them in many Mediterranean restaurants - but this version is well executed and a joy to eat. This mix-and-match plate stars five key elements that pair well with pita. Hummus is a creamy chickpea dip blended with nutty tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice, dressed with Aleppo pepper, diced tomato, olive oil, and parsley. Baba Ganoush mixes smoky roasted eggplant, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs and arrives dressed with matching accompaniments. Tabbouleh is a tangy salad crafted with bulgur, chopped parsley, tomatoes, mint, scallions, and olive oil. Stuffed grape leaves contain similarly punchy rice, parsley, tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, and spices. Crispy fried falafel rings crafted with chickpeas, parsley, onions, garlic, cilantro and spices seamlessly dip in tahini.
