Ilili Review

Famed Washington, D.C., restaurateur and chef Philippe Massoud brings his culinary talents to New York City with this bi-level, 400-seat eatery that showcases cuisine from his native Lebanon. The menu includes standard Middle Eastern fare, but also unexpected dishes like bone marrow with sour-cherry tabbouleh and black cod with fragrant rice and tahini. Waiters never fail to refresh the basket of hot, fluffy, house-baked pita bread. A glass of Lebanese or French wine is a nice accompaniment to the cuisine. Late-night entertainment includes belly dancing.

    Nice atmosphere and great food

    We thoroughly enjoyed the food here! We had a large group of people so we ordered a variety of dishes and each seemed to be better than the last one. The kebabs were an all around favorite and the pita bread was awesome. The atmosphere was low-key but energizing at the same time. The restrooms are unique with individual sliding doors that enclose you in your own individual space.
