Barnea is a quiet bistro in Midtown that’s a bit more subdued than many of the other kosher restaurants in NYC. The menu is fairly limited in comparison to similar spots, but that's fine because everything on it is delicious. Arguably serving the best kosher steak in New York, the restaurant also takes a chance with some interesting appetizers, like the beef carpaccio and beef tartare (not usually found on kosher menus), the lamb riblets, the polenta fries made with truffle honey, and the salad Lyonnaise, which features a soft poached egg, lamb bacon, walnuts, mustard vinaigrette, farro, and pickled onion. The elegant space is beautiful and the service is truly top-notch.
