Mona's specializes in shawarma, the Middle Eastern cousin of gyros. It's served in small slices and lacks the strong garlic of Greek gyros; the flavors are also subtler and the meat is leaner. The rest of Mona's menu wanders through Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean, including vegetarian dishes such as hummus and baba ganouj.  (J.B.) $. CC. NA. 220-9090.

The fare includes many kebabs of beef, lamb and chicken. Manti are tiny homemade beef-filled ravioli in a yogurt sauce. Vegetarians will be pleased with the appetizers and salads, including some excellent stuffed grape leaves. The décor has the Third Ward loft look with amenities like a fireplace and tasteful displays of Turkish ceramic tiles. (J.B.) $$. CC. FB. GF. OD. Handicap access. 273-5252
