Ate here with a large group, and even though this restaurant is technically on 29th Street, I'm still including it in the Chronicles, since the restaurant faces Mission. We tried lots of things on the menu, though nobody had chicken!
Dinner plates come with salad and sides...and the salads were fresh, green, and topped with a dressing made with sumac. Different and good. The vegetarian platter is a good deal, with various dips and spreads—I thought the baba ganoush was particularly good. Hummus is extra smooth—some of my dining companions liked it more than I did. Labneh (which we ordered separately, as it's not on the veggie platter) was very good as well.
I had a lamb shwarema a la carte, which was good. I feel like it's a bit simpler than nearby Old Jerusalem, and didn't have the same amount of pickles which I like, but was certainly worth a try. I think it would be good to do a side-by-side taste test. Same with the falafel, which I didn't try at GFC but looked good on other people's plates.
GFC is not fancy, and has a pretty straighforward menu, but they seem to do it very well. I'd definitely return
