The Scene: The atmosphere at Ranoush is as colorful as its owner, Aboud Alhamid, who greeted patrons enthusiastically throughout our visit to the Delmar Loop restaurant. The dining room features festive tapestries and decor, with an intricate mural of a bazaar scene on the back wall. Diners can choose from tables set for four, cushioned booths or a seat on the patio -- a prime spot for people watching in the busy neighborhood.
