Fodor's Review

It's Jerusalem meets Palestine meets Beirut meets a funky scenester vibe at this Arab-Israeli spot off Chinatown. Sit at the open-kitchen zinc counter and down shots of arak while trading quips with the Middle Eastern chefs, who offer a medley of Levantine delights, including Yemeni-Jewish kubaneh bread, Palestinian steak tartare, Jerusalem truffled mushroom polenta, and tangy paprika-rich pork belly tagine with Israeli couscous. Look, too, for the lavish Kurdish-style mussels inspired by the head chef's beloved grandmother.
