Ever heard of a Druze restaurant? Neither had I. First step, watch the film called The Syrian Bride. That's an easy entryway into this culture. The second best entryway? Gazala in Hell's Kitchen. They offer essentially Mediterranean food with a touch of the Balkans (think: hummus, burek, falafel). What makes this place unique (especially vs. a similar and more expansive menu right down the road at Balkanika) is it's humble and cozy environs and the fact that you are unlikely to ever get a chance to eat at a restaurant featuring food from this culture again. Go for an afternoon snack when it's not too busy. Allows BYOB.
