Two of ilili’s most popular dishes: braised lamb and Brussels sprouts! The lamb is slowly braised with Levantine aromatics, and is served with traditional Lebanese dirty rice, Brussels sprouts, and a side of cucumber yogurt.
Since it first opened its doors in New York’s Flatiron neighborhood in 2007, the elegant and upscale ilili has introduced countless New Yorkers to authentic Lebanese cuisine, perfected by the Massoud family in Beirut over the course of more than 100 years and today prepared with care by Owner and Executive Chef Philippe Massoud. At ilili, Massoud expertly crafts a sophisticated blend of modern and traditional Lebanese cuisine, drawing influences from the span of the ancient Silk Road trade routes.

Shank, Vegetables, Rice
- Toss your vegetables with some olive oil, season with salt, place them on a baking sheet, and roast at 500F for 15-25 minutes depending on what type of oven you have (vegetables should be fork-tender, but not mushy, showing some caramelization).
- While the vegetables are roasting, place your rice in a pot, your sauce in a pot, both on low heat, covered, and occasionally stir.
- Place your shanks in a pot and pour the stock and an equal amount of water on top and cover.
- Bring to a boil and lower the heat to a slow simmer for about 7-9 minutes covered, turn off the heat, and reserve.
- In a large platter, place the rice in the center and spread, place the vegetables on the edges, and the shanks in the center of the plate.
- Pour some sauce over the shanks, and the remainder in a vessel for your guests to add more if they would like.
- Serve the mint yogurt and cucumber as a side to be added to your rice while eating.
- Preheat oven to 375F, and reheat for 4-5 minutes.
- Drizzle the fig jam and yogurt sauce (to your liking) in a zigzag form and add the provided walnuts and grapes as a garnish.
