    It's super quiet and actually feels like you're dining in someone's backyard. The team plans to fire up a smoker once summer officially gets going. Read more

    Great spot for some middle eastern food. We went here for brunch and it was packed. Make sure to make reservations! We had sweet potato hummus, ricotta, muhammara, malawach and shakshuka.

    It’s all great, really. But having been a few times so far the ricotta, labne, shortrib skewer, and chicken are not to be missed. Ok hummus too. Bring friends?

    Seriously one of the best Israeli meals I’ve ever had - almost every thing was incredible. Notables: ricotta honey, short rib skewer, cauliflower, strachiatella, just so freaking good

    The shakshuka is a particular standout, with a traditional take that adds goat cheese and a heaping pile of torn parsley. Read more

    Outstanding destination restaurant. Flooded with smells of curry. Chicken skewer, stracciatella, octopus, kofta all very good. Service pretty snooty, but such is life.

    I haven’t had food as good as this for a long time! Everything was outstanding! The salmon is surprisingly amazing and the chicken shawarma with hummus is heaven! Will be a regular for sure. 😍

    Phenomenal restaurant with great Mediterranean food! Everything on the menu is delicious. Staff id friendly & service is great. Backyard is very relaxing and quiet to eat in. Don’t accept Amex :(

    You absolutely gotta share here! Loved the labne and shakshuka, but the sabich hummus bowl was my favorite - packed with flavor. Wash it all down with a frozen drink.

    Might be one of the best restaurants in Bk! Our server, Ariana, was lovely. Everyting we had was amazing-salmon, steak, falafel, octopus, and some deelish dessert I can't spell w/sorrel. Run here!

    Now that Miss Ada is doing delivery during the pandemic, a few of the small plates and a couple hummus dishes with pita make for an AMAZING dinner in for 2 (and lunch the next day).

    Order a bunch of things to share. I like the sweet potato hummus, the chicken thigh skewer, the halloumi skewer and the falafel.

    2 things are outstanding: whipped ricotta & malawach. Only con was the waitress was a bit condescending to us.

    This place was awesome. The baba ganoush was some of the best I’ve ever had, sweet potato and shwarma hummus also incredible. The pita (pitot) was fluffy and perfect!!!! Great vibe too

    New favorite Israeli. You must get the chicken liver hummus (if you’re in that sort of thing). But also - everything else was 😍.
  • Pearson Lyverse C.heart icon on user image
    Some highlights in no particular order: labne, merguez hummus, chicken hummus, whipped ricotta, cauliflower, halloumi skewer, short rib skewer, baba ghanoush, branzino. Veridian & the thyme cocktails

    Going as a large group would definitely be ideal to sample as much as you can. But if you're forced to choose more wisely, definitely don't miss the babaganoush.

    I've only been here once so far, but after the babaghanoush and kofta (cooked on a cinnamon stick as a skewer), I'm convinced this is the start of a beautiful food relationship.

    Labneh in general is delicious, but it’s nothing special here, despite other reviews. The lamb shawarma hummus, on the other hand! But the show stealers are the skewers, especially the kofta kebab!
