Known for their creative and delicious pitas, Miznon has opened at 161 West 72nd Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues (the former home of Aroma Cafe).
The concept behind the restaurant, as stated on their website:
We are using fresh and seasonally inspired ingredients to create a new kind of Mediterranean street food. Our vision is to take the flavor of each city and translate it into pita. To take the energies, the groove, the longings, the limitations, the beauty and the food and express it all in one pita.
The chef behind Miznon is Israel-born Eyal Shani. He opened the first Miznon in Tel Aviv back in 2011, and has also opened locations in Paris, Vienna and Melbourne.
Here are some menu items which happened to jump out at me (not everything is in pita form):
Folder Cheeseburger in a Pita
Okra (dinner menu)
Lamb Kebab Plate (dinner menu)
Prices are very decent. The most expensive item on their dinner menu is only $17 (hake fish with tomato sauce, tahini and spicy green peppers.
Their pitas range from $8 to $11.
