This is the year when Yemeni restaurants re-invaded Atlantic Avenue, with their mixture of rustic desert fare and mainstream Middle Eastern. The grandly named Yemen Cuisine, which previously went by the mundane but charming name of 145 Luncheonette, remade itself from a table d'hôte place that offered one complete meal of lamb or chicken into an à la carte café. Now you can sample the Yemeni classic aseed, a gigantic doughy dumpling reminiscent of the papier-mâché mountain Richard Dreyfuss sculpted in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
