Massif calls itself a Mediterranean restaurant, and while you can certainly get a solid kebab and shawarma here, we’d recommend you focus on the traditional Iraqi dishes. The kibbeh Mosul, a giant grain pancake stuffed with cinnamon-laced ground meat, is soul-curing, and their manti dumplings with yogurt are addicting. This is a family-run, order-at-the-counter spot, and perfect for lunch and dinner and everything in between.
