Ideas for a catered Lebanese meal?

Anyone ever ordered a quantity of food from a Lebanese restaurant in Brooklyn? If you liked it, please tell me where it is. I'm looking for someplace to order shawarma, tabouleh, baba ghanoush, etc. for a large dinner party. Thanks.

  1. A friend had Sahadi's, the middle eastern grocer on Atlantic Avenue, cater a dinner several years ago and was quite pleased. Not surprised, as the items I get from their deli are usually very good. See the link below for their catering menu. No shewarma, and I've never seen it in the store, but it's probably worth asking them. I know they have the shewarma spices, because that's where I buy mine. Good luck.

    1. I know D'vine taste in park slope does catering. It is a gourmet lebanese deli not a restaurant almost the same as Sahardi.You should check it out by trying a sample of their food first before ordering.

      1. The Sahadis are Lebanese Christians, and do excellent catering. The food is authentic and well prepared, and they are so wonderful to deal with.

        We went to a large party they catered last yuear and enjoyed everything.

          Lebanese christians and muslims alike have the same cuisine. being Arab I can tell you that Sahadi's delhi food is catered for American taste and is not as good as the food you would find in bay ridge where it is more geared for Lebanese and Arabs. I do agree that they have a very good business sense and that their shop is great.

            Where in Bay Ridge do you recommend? And how do they compare to D'vine Taste, which I think is much better than Sahadi's (as much as I love Sahadi's)?

     it Lebanese, I think so. Delicious food, I don't know if they cater though. Lots of old posts on this place. It's in Bay Ridge.

                (by the way, Rawia is from Nazareth and is Palestinian... but it would be splitting hairs, as the food is very close to Lebanese... unless rose water goes and tells me otherwise).

                oops... didn't see welle's post below.

          1. Thanks for all the ideas. I think I'm going to try D'Vine as it's the closest.

              Let us know how you like it. I had the treat of eating loads of food from D'vine Taste this weekend, courtesy of ramen girl, who recommended it above. Incredibly smokey flavored baba gannoush, delicious garlicky tahini, and a luscious leg of lamb covered in spices and loads of garlic were particular highlights, and god were they good! (Made better by ramen girl's incredible grilling skill, of course!)
