The cooking at Mina's might remind you of a potluck supper hosted by friends from Egypt, Greece, Italy, Spain, and France. The kitchen is led by Yasmine Kotb and her mother, who personally trained the staff in re-creating the family's most cherished recipes. Slurp the lentil soup, a dish that Kotb ate as a kid. It's thick, creamy, and pureed; the bowl is scattered with golden baked pita chips that double as spoons. Lamb osso buco is slow-cooked in red wine and carrots until its meat is plump and tender, and a vegan moussaka is so spicy and satisfying you'll ever miss the meat. It helps that no complaints can be uttered about the bill.Read our full review.
