Hello! I am going to be in NYC for one evening in mid october and I am looking to have a fantastic, authentic middle eastern meal. having lived in the middle east for a few years, I like to venture beyond just shawarma and hummus (although those are delicious too!)
am looking for a wide variety of mezza to try, sambousick and sfiha are a must! kafta meshwi, farrouj and a mixed grill would be the sort of entrees im looking for. even if its just a great place to enjoy a few mezza with my significant other before heading to a later dinner elsewhere, thats fine too.
dont really care too much about atmosphere, but would consider it a plus if the restaurant offered a semi-romantic experience and something other than what I can find in maryland.
in general: what do you think is the best middle eastern food in nyc?
Thanks in advance for your help! :)
