Exotic belly-dancing, in the 'burbs

avory food is only part of the experience at Karoun. Every Friday and Saturday night, live international music and belly-dancing bring this outwardly modest-looking family restaurant to life. The food is traditional Middle Eastern and Armenian—house favorites include kebabs, grape leaves, and an ample selection of appetizers and vegetarian dishes, some made by the owner’s parents, and all on a fixed-price menu Fridays and Saturdays—but the real draw here is the exotic music and dance under the low lights, which will transport you to a time and place about as far from the suburbs as it gets. It may actually transport you right onto the dance floor, as the dancers sometimes recruit from the audience. Graves
