Popular Israeli restaurant Miriam in Park Slope is expanding to the Upper West Side. Executive Chef/Owner Rafael “Rafi” Hasid is best known for his daily Israeli brunch including Jerusalem Breakfast, served with two eggs any style, avocado salad, fresh tomatoes, pickles and tahini, and Challah French Toast, topped with halva and berries. [Fun Fact: Miriam’s has served more than 2.5 million eggs since opening 17 years ago.]

Chicken Shawarma

The sister restaurant will also have a full dinner menu and, unlike its Brooklyn predecessor, a full bar program once the liquor license is approved. Diners will find dishes like Braised Short Ribs, tamarind braised beef short rib, sweet potato latke over labneh and string beans, and Lamb Shawarma, under baked dough in a Terra Cotta bowl, with herbed rice, roasted tomatoes and a tahini yogurt amba sauce.

Miriam likes to say it is a celebration of Israeli cuisine that is heavily influenced by the 154 nationalities that make up Israel. The official opening is Monday, Jan 24, 2022.

Miriam is located at 300 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY (646) 590-2657
