Five Affordable Middle Eastern Restaurants 

1 Lebanon's Café

1500 S. Carrollton Ave., 862-6200

Bargain prices, BYOB and a roster of unusual spreads and dips

2 Byblos

3218 Magazine St., 894-1233; 1501 Metairie Road, 834-9773

The menu and ambience are more stylish than most local Middle Eastern restaurants. Belly dancers on Thursday nights Uptown.

3 Casablanca

3030 Severn Ave., Metairie, 888-2209

A kosher kitchen produces an impressive range of entrées, including many fish dishes.

4 Mona's Cafe

504 Frenchmen St., 949-4115; 1120 S. Carrollton Ave., 861-8175; 2820 E. Causeway Approach, Mandeville, 985-624-2977; 3901 Banks St., 482- 0661; 4126 Magazine St., 894-9800;

Pita comes from its own bakery, and prices are low.

5 Babylon

7724 Maple St., 314-0010

Short on atmosphere, but the food is elevated by bread baked in house.
