Well-known for its excellence in baked goods and homey atmosphere, Alon's addition of an open kitchen and carryout case creates a swankier feel and options that are meant to be eaten at home. The meatballs look good and taste even better. You'll want to sop up the leftover sauce with some of Alon's fresh breads. You can't go wrong with the robust roasted lamb sandwich, the marinated and grilled chicken sandwich, the flaky croissants and the crumbly muffins. As always, the desserts will leave you speechless.
