Cuisine: Lebanese

This local Lebanese has been a north shore staple since the 70s but the arrival of current owner/chef Fadi Constantine from London in 2008 raised the Lebanese restaurant’s status from staple to standout. El Karim means “the generous” in Lebanese, which is a pretty good indication that you shouldn’t leave the place hungry. Start with a trio of dips $14 then try pomegranate-marinated baked lamb $16 or one of several excellent vegetarian options, such as falafel-like pumpkin kibbe $13. Seven spice lamb pie $17 is a winter warmer — and a winner. Banquets (vegetarian $30 per person or full banquet $40 per person) are excellent value. With lots of groups dining there , the place can get pretty lively, especially at the weekend.
