Best Sunday Brunch

Amir's Marketplace Restaurant

If the prospect of scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, and waffles has lost its power to move you out of bed on Sundays, how's about hummus, shish tawook, and all-you-can-eat baklava? Of course, that barely scratches the surface of the offerings at this once-a-week, one-of-a-kind Lebanese chow-down, where all the goodies are fresh from the kitchens of Amir Foods' South Euclid headquarters. Recent Sunday-afternoon expeditions have turned up items ranging from vegetarian kibbe (filled with spinach and chickpeas) to slowly simmered lamb shanks full of deep, dark flavor. So eat your fill, but remember: After you answer this tasty Mediterranean wakeup call, French toast and bacon will never sound as interesting again.
