Never understood why Mediterranean restaurants are never full. Everything comes with hummus, it's always budget friendly, and saying things like "baba ganoush" and "shakshuka" is just unexplainably fun.

Does Zizi Limona serve the greatest Medi/Middle Eastern fare I've ever had? Probably not. But are their dishes more than satisfying in addition to being served in a super chill spot in the heart of ol' W-Burg? You bet. 

The menu is pretty unique in the sense that they take the notion of "Mediterranean" and apply that to the cuisines beyond that of the standard Greek/Turkish, with items taking influence from every corner of the sea- from Spain, to Morocco, to Lebanon. If this type of food is up your alley, you'd be hard pressed to find anything on the menu that's not to your liking. But with that said, personal favorites would have to be the ceviche, grilled artichoke, and the aforementioned shakshuka (even typing it brings me joy).

All of this you'll find being served in a space that's quintessentially "Williamsburg" (mismatched furniture, specials written on a chalkboard, walls adorned with shelves exclusively used to store empty wine bottles), but without trying to hard to be trendy and/or hip. Zizi Limona just kinda...is. Definitely worth a visit.
