A new place for Mediterranean food that has recently created some
buzz on Chowhound gave me good reason to walk over to Metropolitan for a look-see. Wafa is just lovely. It replaced the short-lived why-is-this-here? bagel place, and definitely for the better. Much as I love and get cravings for the Mediterrean plate appetizer at Dee’s, I appreciate a small, clean falafel joint where I can hang out by myself with a good book or newspaper. Our takeaway:

  • hummus: delicious, one of the best in the neighborhood ($5 for a small container)
  • tabouleh: fresh, filled with parsley and tomatoes, very healthful ($5 for a small container)
  • baklava: excellent and memorable ($4/piece; we got a container of small bites, which I think ran $8 and two pounds directly applied to my butt)
  • The owner/chef gave us bites of mousabaha and some other tomato-based dish–both wonderful, and so generous of her.

Wafa: 96-08 72nd Ave. at the corner of Metropolitan Ave
