La Mediterranée 2936 College Ave./Ashby Ave.; Elmwood.  Situated in a low-key neighborhood and on a street filled with unique shops, this spot has a pleasant, protected sidewalk-side patio in addition to an attractive, high-ceilinged interior.  The Middle Eastern menu offers an outstanding cinnamony chicken Cilicia in phyllo dough and a succulent chicken pomegranate, as well as soups and salads for lighter appetites.  I like to come here for the lunch special, which is hidden on the back of the menu, and I usually get the 3 filo choice-- opting for two chicken Cilicias and one spinach-cheese and a cup of tasty lemon-chicken soup.  The lunch special comes with two pieces of pita, some delicious hummus, and an assortment of fresh fruit.
