MICHELIN Guide

Honing in on the cuisine of Lebanon, Balade is a welcoming and tasty Middle Eastern experience fronted by a cheerful red awning. The spotless room is accented with tile, brick, and wood; and each table bears a bottle of private label herb-infused olive oil. The menu begins with a glossary of traditional Lebanese ingredients and the explanation that Balade means "fresh, local." The meze; grilled meat-stuffed sandwiches; and Lebanese-style pizzas called manakeesh topped with the likes of lean ground beef, chopped onion, and spices are all fresh-tasting indeed. House specialties are also of note, like the mujaddara crush-a platter of lentils and rice topped with crispy fried onions as well as a salad of cool, chopped cucumber and tomato.
