Baladi expanded from a hole-in-the-wall lunch place to a full blown restaurant this year. My wife and I now eat there a couple of times a month. She is a vegetarian and I'm not so much and we both find great choices on the menu. They have a strong selection of beers and wines, with beers inexpensive at $4-$5. Everything we've had from their seafood specials to the normal menu items (Kebab, Shwaharmah, Kefta, Hoseh, etc) are all very tasty. We always start with their Hummus as well. We haven't tried their desserts. Finally, their waitstaff are just wonderful people.
