Bar Bolonat

You might be familiar with Einat Admony. Her Nolita restaurant Balaboosta is a perennial favorite for fresh Middle Eastern and Mediterranean fare inspired by her Israeli roots, and her takeout falafel spot, Taim, has become an obsession for downtowners on the go. With a setting that’s a bit more upscale, Bar Bolonat serves dishes perfect for sharing – ideal for your next date night, or for a dinner with an intimate group of friends. Don’t miss the poussin, a young chicken served with walnuts, pomegranate, and crispy rice. We hear the chef’s grandmother passed down the recipe, and sincerely hope it stays on the menu for good.
