Overview

Tel Aviv chef Meir Adoni has touched down in NYC on 20th street, which seems to be the new hottest place to be. He has opened his first restaurant outside of Israel which is a 60 seat cafe with an ample bar. The space feels casual but still upscale and trendy. The food is Middle Eastern with stunningly plated dishes full of color and vibrance. Bread is a big deal here; they bake fresh pita, Jerusalem sesame bagels, and kubaneh (similar to challah) in house and each comes with a flavorful array of dips. You'll find elevated takes on Mediterranean comfort food like smoked eggplant carpaccio and lamb pitas. A must have is the stew with tomato, poached fish, and mussels with a glass of Middle Eastern sourced wine.
