Timna opened in 2016 on one of the best food blocks NYC has to offer- St Marks btw 1st & avenue A. The space is cozy and rustic with an intimate feel. Here chef Nir Mesika creates modern interpretations of Mediterranean and Israeli dishes. No, it's not a bunch of hummus and falafel. It is thoughtfully crafted, beautifully plated Israeli food. Every single dish has a complex array of ingredients, sauces and accents that uplift the plate. You can select a chefs tasting or go it on your own and share dishes like kubaneh bread, roasted cauliflower with curry yogurt, Bedouin octopus or Morrocan duck. Whatever you order it will be familiar flavors, recreated in an interesting way. This is really an experience worth having in a city over saturated with dining options.
