You wonder how a tiny, nine-table, family-run Armenian café could survive two years on the fringes of Boca's ritzy Mizner Park. But order a plate of Boca Skewers' falafel and you'll get the picture. These crunchy little balls of fried, spiced chickpeas may be served on a plastic plate with paper napkins, but there's no doubt they're made from scratch by a cook whose family has refined the recipe over generations. The falafel are served with a "secret sauce" made from yogurt, garlic, and spices. The small, reasonably priced Mediterranean menu ranges from grilled lamb kebabs ($16.99) crosshatched with char -- rich, tender, and long marinated -- to chicken soltani, smoky organic eggplant stew ($11.99), and kafte kebabs ($12.99) of ground beef pressed and grilled on a skewer, all accompanied by a side of lentil-flecked rice. There's lots to wow vegetarians. And the Armenian families you'll find eating here aren't complaining.
