  • The Page Turner

    To call The Page Turner a slight film isn't an insult. It's part of a vital tradition in French cinema that focuses the camera on the minute details of characters' lives — the subtle interplays and calmly devastating moments — and creates the movie equivalent of a great short story.

  • A full menu

    The bare tables and paper napkins belie the relative stylishness of the setting, and the huge menu meanders through steaks and seafood to Italian and Greek dishes before it gets to its gastronomic raison d’etre — specialties from Lebanon, with hefty portions averaging around $12, including soup and salad, as well as warm fluffy pita baked on the premises. Among 40 starters and salads are lamb sausage, kibbeh balls, labneeh with garlic, saganaki (opa!) and even chicken tenders and cheese sticks. Most of the entrées (the Lebanese ones including various kebabs, kibbeh, grape leaves and a gyro platter) come with an ample helping of vermicelli-enlivened rice doused with tomato sauce. Expect serviceable wines and bottles of Heineken. If you aren't staring down a doggie bag when before dessert, Ike's has a variety of cakes, pies and baklava.
