    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.

  • Katie D.

    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.

    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.

  • Rewan P.

    Must order the spicy feta and iron skillet shrimp for appetizers! Must order lamb terracota for main course. Brunches are unlimited champagne for $18!

    best happy hour I've been to. Drinks are out of this world (get the Jalisco) and the hummus and bread are made fresh.

    Lindsay Caitlin · November 21, 2014
  • Nicolette R.

    A more sophisticated brunch spot. Come for the bottomless mimosas. The waiters are great at making sure your glass is always full!

    Nicolette Romero · November 2, 2014

    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.

    Lisa Finn · October 17, 2014
  • Kosha S.

    Amazing place! Great happy hour deals! And the unlimited fresh right out of the oven can't even cut into bread they service is divine!

    Went with a vegan friend, so needed a place with options for us both. Ended up having my first vegan meal...hummus, falafel, tomato salad, fried cauliflower, and def get the bread!

    Great place for a weekend boozy brunch. You can continue the unlimited drinks at the bar until 4 pm.

    Perhaps the worst tasting brunch. Do not come here for the food. Under cooked eggs, sugar coated bread allegedly masquerading as French toast, waxen flatbread.

    Carl · March 15, 2014
  • Ramzi A.

    Book table 1

    Ramzi Aboutaam · March 9, 2014

    Chopped salad with lamb kebab is delish. You can't go wrong with any picks in this place.

    Toia Capelli · March 9, 2014
  • Danielle R.

    The Green Shashuka on the brunch menu is amazing!
