Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

There’s a Mediterreanean slant to the food at this classy-looking restaurant on East 46th Street, Midtown East. It’s all certified Kosher, too. The (open) kitchen is overseen by exec head chef Joshua Kessler, who also happens to own the place. 

Starters include duck confit salad with apricot, fennel, orange mostarda and crostini, red snapper ceviche with jalapeno, tomato, cilantro and rainbow radish, and lamb riblets with pistachio, fennel and honey. Mains range from beef bolognese, wild mushroom carbonara and  veal chop with broccolini, heirloom carrot and a honey mustard demi-glace to filet de bouef with heirloom carrot, patty pan squash, pomme purée and sauce au poivre. 

There’s a 11-strong cocktail list too, complemented by a chunky wine list showing an even hit of old- and new-world options. 

Barnea Bistro says
Barnea Bistro fuses select seasonal ingredients and flavors with warm service and sensuous design. Chef Joshua Kessler, in collaboration with his passionate, inventive team, opened Barnea to invite diners inside a creative, immersive and elevated eating environment. It is a space that celebrates sense and enjoyment: evolving menus blend with crafted cocktails, curated beverages mix with musical atmosphere, delicious sounds absorb into decor—where texture is everywhere and the kitchen is open, with everything to show.

Our cuisine begins with a dedication to fresh, seasonal ingredients and ends with attention to a full sensory experience–taste, texture and presentation. Each dish explores its elements with a variety of techniques, highlighting an array of taste and texture properties. Every plate is its own expressive design. Each menu is conceived for a surprising, complete and harmonious meal.
