Best Middle Eastern 

Ali Baba Restaurant

Chef, owner, and operator of this quirky West Side restaurant for 25 years, Linda Kihm takes the notion of freshness to the extreme, making nearly everything on her small, ridiculously cheap Middle Eastern menu from scratch and to order, often using homegrown, organic ingredients. It's easy to taste the difference in Ali Baba Restaurant's herb-laced salads, aromatic makdoos (a fragrant sauté of eggplant, ground walnuts, herbs, and spices), and sticky-sweet grape leaves. FYI: Kihm keeps irregular hours, the better to pursue her varied interests. 12021 Lorain Ave., 216-251-2040
