This Mid-Eastern restaurant, whose name translates as simply "the orchard," is popular with locals, who appreciate Al Bustan's elegant atmosphere and sleek interior. If you are very hungry, begin your meal with one of the mezes (appetizers); for example, try the stuffed grape leaves or smoked eggplant salad. Next, move straight to one of the excellent entrées like makanek (lamb), shish taouk (chicken), hummus served with sautéed lamb and pignoli or samboussek (stuffed dumplings). If you still have room left, Al Bustan's dessert offerings include a sampler, baklava and their ever-popular butter cookies. TRAIN: 4, 5, 6 to 51st St
