We stumbled upon Araz on Citysearch while looking for a BYOB establishment, and the result was excellent. Our primetime Friday night visit did not need a reservation. In fact, when our party of 4 arrived, we were the only patrons. Do NOT let this dissuade you! The restaurant is quaint, but comfortably appointed. Our server was very attentive, conversational, answered our questions about the cuisine, and gladly opened our wine for us (no corkage fee). We ordered the Foul Mamoudos (?) as an appetizer. It's something like a vegetarian chick pea chili and it was superb. For the main course, we can highly recommend the beef stroganoff, shish kebob and pork kebob. Everything was tasty and served in hearty portions. The stroganoff was creamy and subtle served steaming hot with a savory side salad, rice and silky smooth hummus. The shish kebob was melt-in-your-mouth tender filet mignon also served with salad, rice and hummus. The pork kebob was well seasoned and grilled. We enjoyed the service, the people (the owner apologized for not having the baklava tonight), the food, the reasonable pricing --- the whole package. Give Araz a try!
