Time Out says

The lively stretch of Ditmas Park that’s home to local favorites Picket Fence and the Farm on Adderley also boasts this casual Middle Eastern café. True to its name, Mimi’s offers five kinds of the chickpea spread, some fortified with add-ins like ground beef or velvety mashed fava beans, and the chefs are known to accommodate requests from picky eaters. Don’t miss out on the brunch menu: Israeli, Moroccan and Iraqi staples include flaky spinach and cheese burekas (savory pastries) and hearty shakshuka merguez—a tomato stew rich with sunny-side-up eggs and spicy lamb sausage.

has the meatball bowl at urbanspace vanderbilt - and can i just say that this literally melts in your mouth. the eggplant is cooked to perfect and the tomato sauce just marries everything. the meatballs tasted so fresh and wasn't too heavy. 


One of my absolute favorite places to eat in New York. It's cozy, the service is always great, all the ingredients are fresh and prepared on site, and it has the best hummus, bar none. 

It's a small place with a menu to match, so not a spot for a huge group, but definitely the place to come with 1-3 other people so you can order a lot and share everything. The traditional and mushroom hummus are my favorite, and do not miss the roasted cauliflower. It's addicting. For brunch, make sure someone gets the shashuka and someone gets Mimi's sandwich. Whether you come for breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner, you will be happy. Promise. 

Also, if you're a fan of chocolate (and who isn't), make sure you get an order of the punchim for dessert. I'm still not sure exactly what they are, but I order them every time.
