You won’t be completely tricked into thinking you’re in the Old City of Jerusalem when you walk into Andala on Franklin Street (after all, there’s an Enterprise Rent-A-Car across the street and a Subway up the block). But with gold chandeliers, Persian rugs, and hookah pipes, this place comes pretty close to the real deal. The menu features big plates of shakshuka, hummus platters, and meat pies, so you can use this place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just as a casual coffee shop. When the weather’s nice, the vine-covered patio out front is one of the most pleasant outdoor spaces in the city.
