Barbounia specializes in modern Mediterranean cuisine. The vibrant atmosphere and worldly music complete the experience.
My go-to for a boozy brunch. Cheap bottomless brunch + affordable, good-sized meals! Plus they let you keep drinking at the bar until 4pm.
Great happy hour and extensive whiskey selection! Milosh is a top notch bartender! They also have aged cocktails in barrels, pretty cool
Table set up makes for waiters and other guests unapologetically bash into your chair throughout entire meal.
Pleasant decor and atmosphere. Great octopus and humus, as well and house bread. Decent salmon tartar. Lamb dish not too exciting, although interesting presentation
The trio of dips is always a great idea. Definitely would recommend the chocolate cake for even the most non-dessert people.
Great for seafood lovers. The ceviche was refreshing and the Snapper entree was fantastic.
SPICY FETA, a must.
Aside from the bathrooms, super baby-friendly with crayons, a yogurt bowl loaded with fresh fruit and even a waiter that poured water directly into her sippy cup with a smile.
Try the dips, the pita served with is phenomenal. Service left something to be desired.
Their pita sandwiches look amazing - next time I'll order that. The eggplant appetizer was so fresh. Service amazing. Come for brunch!
The trio of mezzes was delicious with the Rosemary bread. Get the Hummus, Roasted Eggplant and Spicy Feta! Branzino was okay, not enough flavor, a good health choice tho. Lamb Kebabs were okay for me.
Maybe the happy hour is good, Maybe we caught them on the wrong night, but that was the WORST $100 meal I've ever had.
Our restaurant week dinner was just OK. Some good dishes, but nothing exceptional. I'm definitely not a fan of #RestaurantWeek.
Really expensive and terrible service but food was great 🤗
Went for brunch. Omelette left me underwhelmed but they serve you the best bread. Would go back for that and the bottomless mimosas
Crazy expensive. For example, $17 for a chopped salad WITHOUT a protein. An additional $8 for chicken. Silly town.
Bottomless booze and great Mediterranean baked egg dishes.
Solid bread basket, lots of egg options, unlimited champagne cocktails for $20 - what more can you ask for? I got the crab Benedict which was amazing, but very rich!
A bit overrated
Very pricey, but delicious.
Great spicy feta. Must have. Must also try the Silan dessert. One of the best desserts I've ever had anywhere.
Food was amazing.. Way better than all the tips/ reviews prepared me for. But the service was poor. Waited 15 minutes to be handed the dessert menu and then 20 minutes for the dessert itself.
The ambiance makes you feel like you're not in NYC. Get the beet salad if you're going the salad route, but don't skip the pita
The lamb sausage, grilled octopus, and the mortadella and broccolini pizza was delishi. Great for groups or a table for 2.
Consistently good. Great happy hour and apps!
A hidden gem: a Cheesecake Factory knockoff in the heart of Manhattan. Loud, obnoxious, gaudy and loud again. The food is actually quite good though. Get the Turkish Eggs.
Bottomless brunch is fantastic. If you're not ready to leave, you can keep drinking at the bar after paying the check.
Incredible brunch. Get a couple of small plates and make sure to have some of their bread.
Loved the food, the vibe and the service. Small plates is the way to go.
Really good brunch, start with spicy feta dip, I love the crab Benedict and baked eggs.
If you're early to brunch (be there around noon), there's plenty of space at the bar. But only if you're early, so plan like a Pro; no reservation, pick any seat you want.
Must order the spicy feta and iron skillet shrimp for appetizers! Must order lamb terracota for main course. Brunches are unlimited champagne for $18!
The hummus and the chicken are fantastic!
Amazing happy hour and fun times for large groups. The rosewater panna cotta is muy tasty
Bottomless mimosa brunch. Great food. Very loud.
bartenders awsome ambient 10+
Great atmosphere, delicious Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food, could be less expensive though.
Energetic #Mediterranean resto 6 blocks north of #UnionSquare. Burrata w/black quinoa, yellow fin tuna- amazing dessert called silan
Greek salad is perfect. Striped bass is bland but good.
The Kanafeh is amazing!
Bottomless mimosas and bellinis
Very good place for groups
best happy hour I've been to. Drinks are out of this world (get the Jalisco) and the hummus and bread are made fresh.
A more sophisticated brunch spot. Come for the bottomless mimosas. The waiters are great at making sure your glass is always full!
The hummus is amazing. Great happy hour deals. Gets super busy during it so get there early if you want a seat at the bar!
With how amazing the mezze and appetizer menu is, I could enjoy an entire meal of just starters here and be more than content. The Iron Skillet Shrimp were perfectly seasoned and bursting with flavor.
