Mediterranean Restaurant to Open at 74th and Amsterdam

An Israeli and Mediterranean restaurant called Homemade by Miriam will be opening at 300 Amsterdam Avenue, at the corner of 74th Street. (Thanks to ‘Upper West Sider’ for the tip).

The previous tenant at this space was Recolte Bakery, which opened in September 2017 and closed during the summer of 2020. Josie’s was the long-time tenant preceding Recolte.

Owner Refael Hasid and Chef Alon Hadar have another Homemade by Miriam location at 88 West Broadway in Tribeca, a to-go version of the original Miriam in Park Slope which opened in 2005.


The Upper West Side location will offer both take-out and indoor and outdoor dining, and they tell us they’re aiming to open by May.

Some popular menu options include Miriam’s Signature Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich; the “OG Miriam” (chicken shawarma, smoked green wheat freekeh with osyter mushrooms, kale and chickpea salad, roasted tomato and onion and tahini); and the “Out of the Persian Gulf” (Persian style fish cakes, herbed basmati rice, fennel and pomelo salad, pomegranate beets, in house tahini).
