Cafe Munir

I also want to go to Cafe Munir, so if anything gets set up, let me know!



Since my trip to NYC got cancelled, I"m free to go any upcoming night! Eden had a run in with no Sunday night, and Tues is V-day, so how do people feel about Mon or Weds or Thurs this week (13,15,16)?


I can do Monday or Wednesday but not Thursday. I hope this comes together - I've been thinking about it a lot.

I dont know why MFF ate my original text, but I was indeed going to suggest scheduling somthing.

Like Lauren, I can do monday or wednesday but not thursday. If we need to schedule out further the 20th & 21st look good from here.

Let's go with Weds, the 15th.

Brett and I, Lauren, Eden, plus ones too? Anyone else? I'll call and reserve.

No plus one for me. Paul is out of town. He's excited to try it when he gets back though.

Okay, I'm going to call tonight and see if they'll let me reserve, I'm thinking at 7:30? here's my list:

Naomi
Eden + 1
Sparrows Fall
Lauren

Since we're only 6, I'm not sure they will, but shouldn't be hard to get a spot, they've got a big table up front, or can push together a few smaller ones.

See y'all wednesday.

I enjoyed my dinner at Cafe Munir a lot. It was nice to be able to try pretty much everything on the menu. My favorite things were the hummus with the lamb, Baba Ghanoush (who knew I would like eggplant so much), Haloumi (cheese fried in butter, what could be bad about that?) and the Aarayess (Lebanese quesadilla!). The skewers and the family style dishes were just okay. Service was... odd. When we ordered soup, which was listed on the menu in the family style dish section, our server told us it was hard to share. Uh, then why is it listed as a family style dish? She had no answer. Desserts were fine, nothing to write home about.

I'd go back for the mezze. It'd be great if they did it to go - that Baba Ghanoush would be perfect to take to my book club.

I agree the mezze are the standout, although the beef kebab was quite good too. The traditional egyptian dishes were just bland (that may be traditional but it's not appealing) and the desserts were just ok, though if they would just cook the baklava for another 15 minutes I bet it would be fabulous, I think it was the undercooked filo made it blah. That Baba Ganoush though :rolleyes: smoky rich creamy fabulousness even eggplant haters can love!

All right you lucky people. Get ready to welcome Mike and Wendy Jordan, formerly owners of Rosemary's in Las Vegas. They have pulled up stakes and moved to Seattle. More details to come...


Wow - that's very exciting. I'm looking forward to hearing more.


any more news on this move?
