Time Out says

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

Patriarch Isaac Mansoura started this bakery with recipes that migrated with his family for generations, from Syria to Egypt to Paris, and finally to Brooklyn in 1961. The quality of the Middle Eastern confectionery is unsurpassed. Baklava, filled with fresh walnuts or moist pistachios, are sticky yet crisp, each layer of phyllo pastry miraculously distinct. Mamoul cookies are precious packets—barely sweet pastry filled with date puree or pistachio sweetmeat. The shop itself, with an iconic cursive sign and wood-paneled interior, may be a trek for some. Luckily, you can order the treats at mansoura.com.
