Maayan Habira

Maayan Habira Review

If you're looking for meat with a capital M, you've found the place. The decor is informal: beer kegs are piled up in a corner; the walls are covered with photos of glowing restaurant reviews and a mural of the customers painted by an art student in 1989. The Romanian family-run business has been around since 1962; today Reuven and his son Shlomi do the excellent cooking. To start, savor chopped liver, jellied calf's foot, gefilte fish, or oxtail soup. Then go to work on delectable pork spareribs or goose or beef pastrami, which they smoke themselves. As befits a place whose name means the "beer spring," an impressive selection of imported beers is on tap. In summer, diners sit outside and enjoy live music. It's usually a lunch place, but Tuesday night it's open for dinner.
