Most of the plates are shareable, which gives diners the ability to order an assortment of dishes for the table to try rather than being stuck with one meal. While many of their dishes include favorites like hummus, falafel, and pita bread, the chefs at Zatar are putting a twist on those classic plates with unusual ingredients like beets and fried cauliflower.
