I want to take my husband for Lebanese food....anywhere in Boston we should check out? When we lived in DC the choices were many....here not so much.

          Third. If you're on Facebook, they announce the specials of the day on their page. Today's was Mlukhieh: jute leaves and cilantro cooked with chicken, topped with onions, vinegar and pita chips

          If you want to venture outside of Boston to the suburbs, Byblos in Norwood has excellent Lebanese food.

            i second Byblos. Very fresh, always delicious. Fair prices and good, friendly service. Has been our go to place for Lebanese. We've also always had great food at Karoun in West Newton. A little pricey but very good. Also friendly owners, and pretty good belly dancers and entertainment on weekends.
