    Best lunch deal in the city? I think yes. $19 for the mezze feast (delish flatbread + 8 seasonal small plates like pickled veg and labneh.) For $25 add a main, too (get the lamb!) So much good food.

    Excellent true Mediterranean cuisine w/ a new American touch, made by actual Mediterranean chefs. You can feel the love, the research and the creativity in each dish. Loved it. Do not miss the mezze!

    Fave brunch in NYC. Order the mezze and enjoy a bunch of amazing homemade dishes. Sage flatbread is incredible. Pro tip: the mezze is unlimited, just ask your waiter for more of your faves.

    Head to this airy restaurant to sample the exciting Mediterranean fare from Brooklyn's Sara Kramer. Standout dishes include the rabbit, the bulgur croquettes, and the flaky bread. [Eater 38 Member]

    I licked the lamb stew bowl clean - no shame. The griddle bread excellent. We ordered family style and just kept the dishes coming & coming. Great ambiance here too.

    Yellowtail tartare, fava bean dip with potato skins, and sea bass entree. Skip onion brown bag and carrot falafel. End with chocolate mousse, meringue and ice creams - lavender scoop.

    Welcome to the northern-most resto in BK, where you'll find one of the best dining atmospheres anywhere. Flatbread is a no-brainer, but also get on the brussels sprouts, kohlrabi tacos and roast lamb.

    Really enjoyed the steak, flatbread and cauliflower. I really like the fresh take in Mediterranean food. Great mixed drinks and a very welcoming atmosphere.

    I heard that the menu changes here regularly but if you ever happen to see lamb and rice on the menu GET IT! It's one of the most delicious dishes I've ever tasted.

    The menu descriptions do not do justice to how amazing and complex the dishes are. Your ideal meal: radishes w/ feta, new potatoes w/ Spanish cheese & soft egg, rice w/ yogurt and the lamb belly. Wow.

    Came here for dinner. A++, From the griddle bread to the lamb to the fried chicken to the mushrooms and corn. Waiter made the experience that much better and ambiance is great.

    The Glasserie building is worth the trip alone, with beautiful exposed brick the order of the day. Cozy in Winter and vibrant in Summer, the menu lends itself to sharing and is great for vegetarians. Read more

    Some places are iffy on their 1st week but Glasserie, with Chef Kramer, starts out with a BANG! Everything I tasted was delicious especially the flaky bread. Oh geez, get the flaky bread, a must.

    Everything is delicious. Definitely get at least one flatbread and an order of labneh to start. If you're a bourbon fan, I highly recommend the astrid—super simple and refreshing.

    Mediterranean/American Farm fusion. Must go. Fantastic food, moderately priced. A $76 rabbit dish is an incredibly delicious feast. The space is interesting and modern. Service could be much better.

    Pretty off the beaten path in industrial Greenpoint, which means a lunch or dinner reservation is rarely required (at least for 2). Interesting menu: try the rabbit & the lamb tartare. A lot of spice.

    Highly recommend this spot for a double date. All dishes are made to be shared, and you'll want to try as many as you can. The menu changes daily and honestly, everything was amazing.

    Eat here to feel sophisticated in Greenpoint. No fuss atmosphere with high class food. Cocktails are small but delicious and the food is delish; get the chicken in almond milk with flakey bread.

    Amazing place if you want great and somewhat fancy dinner and drinks without the fancy attire. The food they have is creative and special, lots of dishes come from the charcoal grill.

    Fantastic Mediterranean in a perfectly rustic space, the most northerly eatery in BK. Double down on the flaky bread, and if you're a group of 4 or more, don't miss the rabbit.

    NYT recommends the whole rabbit; squid w/eggplant & chickpeas; rice w/yogurt, chanterelles & hen of the woods mushrooms; chicken w/cranberry beans & summer squash; lamb shoulder; sea bream.

    This was a random yelp find, as I was in Greenpoint (I've never found myself in) and my friends and I got hungry so I got to searching. I saw the photos to this place and that was enough for us to go

    My new favorite greenpoint Brooklyn restaurant no dish is less than superb. Such fresh seasonal ingredients. They had me at homemade tahini/labane & kube aka lamb croquettes

    Although location is a bit 'iffy' everything else exceeded expectations.. Especially lightly deep fried brussel sprouts in a brown bag. They change the menu frequently but I'm confident you'll love it

    Beautifully presented and inventive Mediterranean dishes. Felt like we sampled most of the menu. Especially loved the chicken kibbe. Only disappointments the mackerel dish and lamb babka.

    Seasonal produce and delicious Middle Eastern flavors. The best by far is the Chicken dinner with chickpeas and cilantro. Finish dinner with the chocolate tart.

    Fernet cocktail (black juice) in a cutesy environment. The rest are piggybacking tips: labneh, flatbread sides and "rabbit for two" is actually more like 3 or 4. Highly amaze though.

    Bottomless mezze is brilliant and ingredients are good. Just don't come for authenticity, I'd call it Arab Fusion at best. Cringed every time I heard the staff badly mispronouncing the names of dishes

    Came for brunch: delicious poached egg shakshuka style dish and the Berber cocktail-- all around delicious. Beautiful and spacious, check out the back patio.

    The rabbit for two easily serves three. It's brilliant, creative, and hearty while remaining bright and interesting throughout. I dream about it.

    Great Lebanese food with some really special twists, absolutely GORGEOUS space, and friendly waitstaff and bartenders. This is a gem in Greenpoint.

    The cucumber salad is wonderfully crisp and refreshing. Get the flatbread, it's tender and filled with herbs and you'll be dying for more.

    Whatever you get, get it with flaky bread and labneh. And finish your meal with shots Fernet for the table, before it goes out of fashion.

    The food and the wine are special. We went for dinner and had a great evening. Nothing like Glasserie in the rest of Wburg/gpt!

    Great for vegetarians and gluten-free folks, as well as the free-to-eat-whatever set. The flaky bread is nearly impossible to say no too.

    Mezze Feast for brunch - $19pp with free refills. Can't beat that! Also, so delish.

    Get the chicken!!! Not your typical dish and turned out to be our favorite of the whole meal. The labneh is killer too!

    Try the roasted cabbage. It tastes like rancid cheese but they'll tell you it's intentional. Must refine my palate for bad tasting food. Enjoy the nuts though. Beware of hidden shells.

    Ok this place is the shit. Labneh, rabbit, beans in a bag, labneh, chicken & mint, labneh, and if its still summertime get a bottle of the susucaru dry rosé.

    Cauliflower with caper yogurt is a must. Skip the copia, and snack on the pistachios. If your of the meat eating kind I hear the rabbit is not worth the price.
