Studio City's Mantee Cafe looks a lot like your Lebanese-Armenian grandmother's house, if you had a Lebanese-Armenian grandmother who could cook very, very well.

And there, under patio lights, you'll be served wonderful kebabs and hummus, borek and the little meat-filled dumplings for which the cafe is named.
