See what I mean about flower banks?
Al Badawi

March 26, 2022

Remember the Palestinians? For them it was the usual week of torture, injustice, being made homeless, being jailed- kids and adults – for being Palestinian. Meanwhile we throw money at Israel.

We went to Al Badawi, a Palestinian restaurant in Brooklyn. It’s a large, gently lit space filled with flower banks and sturdy wooden tables. So much is large: terra cotta water jugs that weigh more than you do, menus that have five or six pages, ample portions of food. The staff is professional and courteous, very helpful with suggestions. The red pepper and the eggplant appetizers were delicious. We shared a six layer beef dish that had many other ingredients, BYOB! It was a delightful evening.
