The Bedouin Tent's dining room feels like a Bedouin tent, with earthy colors and dim (but not dark) lighting. Even more comforting is the fresh pita. Puffed with steam when it emerges from the kitchen, the bread becomes crisp around the edges after deflating. The menu is what you expect from a trusted Middle Eastern favorite, but here the usuals live up to their potential: One can taste the olive oil in the baba ghanouj, the lemon in the tabouleh. The spinach pie looks like a calzone and is a big lunch all on its own.
