Must try: Mint Lamb Kababs, Vegetarian Grill

Taboon in Hell’s Kitchen offers sophisticated Middle Eastern fusion food. They have coined a new word “Middle Terranean” which defines their cuisine. The food here tends to be more Mediterranean with Middle Eastern touches. Call it what you will, it is all very good.

The best dishes come from the huge brick “taboon” which means “oven” in Arabic. Their signature foccacia along with any number of their wonderful dips such as hummus, tzaziki, schoog and so on are definitely worth a try. For something a little different try the Sambusak, which is made with taboon bread, stuffed with feta cheese, jalapeno, onion.

 

All of our entrees were equally exceptional and the desserts were very interesting. The service was warm and flawless which made for a perfect way to spend a wonderful evening.
