Miriam is most popular at brunch, which they do every day, but it’s not one of those spots filled with people who are more interested in seeing how many mimosas they can drink in 90 minutes than what they’re actually eating. This Israeli spot makes some truly excellent brunch dishes (get the burekas), and the environment is homey but still lively. The two-tops and bar seating work well for dates, but the food here is shareable and the tables can be pushed together, so keep it in mind for group hangs as well. Just expect a wait for brunch on weekends.

Barbounia is definitely not our jam. It’s way too expensive for what they’re serving, and the grandiose and gaudy decor makes it feel like some sort of vaguely Mediterranean performance hall. Like at any moment one of the bus boys might start juggling.
HaSalon is a party restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen where you can dance on tables after eating enjoyable but very expensive Israeli food.
Marlow Bistro is an Italian restaurant on the Upper West Side that feels like the setting of a first date scene from a 90s romantic comedy.
