Joy serves a complete set menu of varying prices and choices. You begin with several little dishes of Moroccan-based vegetable appetizers and salads - deeply flavored eggplant, spicy tomato-pepper relish, hummus, caramelized sweet potato salad along with warm pita for scooping. You are then brought grilled meats with rice, and I especially loved the dish of chickpeas topped with spicy ground lamb. Desserts included a lovely passionfruit gelato.

Moderately priced, wine and beer, and kosher (meat). It's a popular place, so a reservation is your best bet.
