When Ancient Rivers debuted a few weeks ago, it didn't just bring one style of international cuisine with it; it brought a whole handful. Ancient Rivers features food from all over Africa and the Middle East, including Moroccan, Tunisian, Egyptian, Lebanese, and Iraqi eats. They come in the form of 40 mezze small plates, so you can try a few every time you visit.
Build a smorgasbord of authentic fare starting with the cauliflower rubbed with Middle Eastern spices and fried, plus the beef-stuffed meat dolma, the baba ganoush, and the hummus topped with warm fava beans, tomatoes, and scallions. You can also skip the mezze and dig right into an entree like the braised lamb shank, the chicken kabob with pita and tabbouleh, or the pita sandwich stuffed with crispy falafel.
