Loop lunch faceoff: Naf Naf Grill & Abou Andre
If you think hummus is yummus, here's some very good news: The Loop has just added two new pita-packed Middle Eastern restaurants. In July, Lebanon-based Abou Andre Mediterranean Bistro (60 E. Jackson Boulevard 312-386-1300) launched its first U.S. location in the Loop's south end. A few blocks northwest, suburban favorite Naf Naf Grill (309 W. Washington St. 312-251-9000) fired up the grill at its first city location earlier this month. That's a serious uptick in kabobs, falafel and shawarma. Since these two newcomers have similar menus and price points, we pitted them against one another to see which has more pita appeal.
