Manousheh is a small takeout restaurant in Greenwich Village that specializes in Lebanese flatbreads (manousheh). There are plenty of meat and vegetable toppings, but we recommend the ground lamb and hummus. This place is open all day, so grab one at lunch (best enjoyed while sitting in Washington Square Park), or to coat your stomach before a night of drinking.
