Mediterranean + Gluten-Free Restaurant Opening at 83rd & Columbus

A new gluten-free restaurant called Arba is expected to open in early February (first reported by Haaretz). It will be located at 472 Columbus Avenue, between 82nd and 83rd Streets (the former home of Jumbo Bagels). The chef behind the new restaurant is Nirk Tzuk, who has a huge name back in Israel, and currently operates a kosher restaurant in Tel Aviv called Mapu.


Like Mapu, Arba will be a Mediterranean restaurant (even though there will be hummus on the menu).

The original plan was for the restaurant to just be a temporary pop-up, but recent plans have changed.

The Haaretz article gets into detail about some of the foods which will be featured on the menu.

What to Expect at Arba:

  • room for about 50 people
  • a seasonal menu
  • lots of fish and vegetable dishes
  • no meat
  • a weekly tasting menu
  • gluten-free baked goods for morning visitors

Main courses will go for about $25, tapas for about $10, and the tasting menu will be $59.
