While its too late in the season to jump into a pile of fresh snow (and thank goodness for that), it's never too late to immerse yourself into what we—and other critics—consider some the world's fluffiest couscous. The couscous in question comes from one of Israel’s top chefs, Meir Adoni of Nur. And for those who prefer the riverside views in Dumbo to Flatiron's Madison Square Garden, you're in luck. We've brought the insanely popular Middle Eastern restaurant to Brooklyn in our very own Time Out Market for its first-ever follow-up. And, of course, along with the ride is the Adoni's signature, not-to-be-missed couscous which pairs nicely with the insane views of the Brooklyn Bridge, available at The Rooftop at Time Out Market. Pair it with a cocktail from one of our Time Out Bar Awards winners and you're good to-go for fail-proof meal.
So often couscous, made from durum wheat semolina in Israel, is second fiddle to its other commingling elements like turmeric, cumin, fresh mint, golden raisins or perfectly tender chicken. But Adoni's version with particles so fine and delicate, gives couscous an extraordinarily elegant upgrade. Your mouth will be so happy, you won't have time to debate the semantics: is couscous a pasta or a grain? The correct answer is pasta, but it doesn't really matter. The real question is how can we make our mattresses feel as airy and comfy as this dish, because we want to live in it forever.
