Maza

by gastronomicbypass

Location – 2748 N. Lincoln (Lincoln and Diversey)

In one word – Familiar

Food – Come for the Lebanese menu, stay for the family-like treatment you’ll receive from the staff.  I had one of the specials, a lamb casserole with dried fruits.  It was juicy and flavorful.  Additionally you receive a complimentary soup (the carrot soup  is great) and dessert (an ice cream/kulfi mixture).   My eating partners had the lamb couscous and the other two specials for the day.  All were satisfied.

Drink – We settled for a bottle of the cab.  The nice thing is that the wine ranges in price, you have plenty of options if your wallet isn’t thick.

Service – The food was complimented by the service.  The owner was on the floor of this place serving the food, making sure all the customers were happy.  I felt like the owner was a father-figure by the end of the meal.  This is the type of place where you’d want to be a regular because the service is that good.

Occasion – The place is pretty quiet and relatively intimate.   Come here on a date or with some friends.  You also could have a work dinner here if you want the atmosphere to be low-key.

Dress – I wouldn’t dress down, but at the same time, don’t try that hard for your dinner look.  Jeans are fine.

Cost – You’ll pay $30-ish  for an appetizer, entree and beverage.
