If you like middle eastern fare, and would like a slightly upscale venue for a tasty meal with friends, check this place out. The food is diverse and very tasty, the service is excellent and the atmosphere is very lively and social.

I've been here many many times through the years and today was the worst. The food was good and the service was not up to par. Had a reservation today at 1:15pm for 4 people. The place was crowded as usual for Sunday brunch. We were seated by Server 203 Bryant T @ Table 5/1. Things started off well, we... More

Wonderful food - some of the best brunch food I've had in a very long time. Absolutely delicious appetizers too. Relaxed setting in a vaguely exotic way, put on your long dangling earrings.

Happened upon this place and it was a great find. The place was very busy but only had to wait about 20 minutes. The food was very good, the lamb pita kebabs were well done and quite tasty. We did not know about the bottomless mimosas as it would have been cheaper than the $15.00 glasses of wine but only... More

Had a wonderful brunch and I would definitely recommend. Caught a window for a walk-in without a reservation. By the time we left, the place was packed. The ambiance was inviting and comfortable and service was very good. Beginning with bottomless mimosas isn't a bad way to start. My husband had a chicken sandwich with fries, which was good. I...

One of my new favorite restaurants. The food is a perfect blend of mediterranean flavors with just enough innovative pairings to make it something different, special. All, in a fun, friendly, and creative atmosphere. We had a table by the open window which is great. Will definitely be going back.

My wife and I were in the Chelsea area and this restaurant had been suggested as a place we might enjoy. We sure did. The hummus was first rate. So was the falafel sandwich and the tasty salad. The ambience was tasteful and inviting. Add it to your list if you are a foodie or food enthusiast.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
