I ate at Lebanon's Cafe a few days ago for the first time; my companion had eaten there on many, many occasions over the years. She is an ardent fan of the lentil soup, which we had on a couple of occasions during our week in New Orleans. The lentils are blended into a pureed soup, and the result is reliably tasty and quite filling. Drawing on her long experience with the cafe's food, we also enjoyed the hummus with fried cauliflower and pomegranate sauce. The main draw, however, is something she had often told me about when speaking of this favorite cafe of hers: the roasted lamb shank (which I oddly cannot find on the on-line menu). It makes for a very satisfying meal at a very reasonable price, and the meat is extremely tender, virtually falling off the bone and well-sauced. Her verdict for our evening was that the lamb, while very good, has at times been truly outstanding. So, like many restaurants, what you get in a dish may vary from day to day (perhaps depending on who's doing the cooking), but if you like lamb, do try the shank.
