The Lebanese family of Restaurant Habibi allows their culture to permeate the entire space. Each of the five salons has a different theme: calligraphy, womenâ€™s eyes, a traditional seating area. Arab music lures souls to sway into a delicious repast. The dishes have subtle undertones of mint and other spices. Diners who canâ€™t decide which of the dozen classical Middle Eastern dishes to have, may chose a sampler plate. Featured wines come from Riojaâ€™s bodegas. Every Saturday night (11 p.m.), belly dancers entertain. Open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m., 8 p.m.-1 a.m. The owners speak English and French.
