Haddad's - New Lebanese Joint on 31st Street

Haddad's is a Lebanese take-out and dine-in joint that opened just last month.  I've been curious to check it out after walking by a couple of times and being intrigued by its pleasant facade.  Just this week, I had a chance to peruse the menu and it looks enticing - Middle Eastern food with plenty of meat but also veggie options at a really competitive price.  Some of the mezze cost as little as $.95 each!  Check out a sampling of the menu below and feel free to give them a try.
