Middle Eastern in White Plains

I'm thinking I need to head to White Plains for lunch today. And I'd love to grab some middle eastern (mabye lebanese). I should know this, but for some reason, I can't remember any middle eastern places in White Plains being recommended here. I'm sure I'm just overlooking it, but any recommendations for some good lunch food (thinking maybe turkish or lebanese) near White Plains would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Not exactly in White Plains, and not exactly Middle Eastern, but Zitoune in Mamaroneck has good Moroccan. It's a white tablecloth place, so expect an hour or so.

      Zitoune is excellent.

      Turkish Meze in Mamaroneck is very good too.

    2. None that I know of Adam. Greek - Niko's - mediocre on Central Ave and there's a good middle eastern grocery near there (can't remember the name) on the opposite side which may be what you are thinking of. However, it's purely a grocery - not a cafe, no tables. If you can get to Mamaroneck, do Turkish Meze but it's a bit of a ways in you have limited time.

        The grocery is Yaranush (322 Central Avenue). I almost stopped in yesterday but was short on time. I'm curious to see what they have.

          Make sure you try the "french" feta, you wont be disappointed. A friend of mine who is Greek reccommended it, I will be eternally grateful. They also have good pita and olives in addition to many other items.

      2. Try the falafel at MINT in Tarrytown. Stuffed with loads of goodness from exotic pickles to a sensational house made tahini, I think its the best falafel in westchester and almost better than my all time favorite, Taim in the West Village.
