Shaya Restaurant
Modern Israeli food in chic, upbeat digs
Israeli · Uptown · $$
At this Uptown hangout, chef Alon Shaya (Domenica, Pizza Domenica) pulls from a pastiche of modern Middle Eastern, Turkish, North African and Greek flavors inspired by his Israeli roots, serving shared dishes like baba ghanoush and tabouleh, hummus kicked up with curry-fried cauliflower and falafel, all accompanied by wood-fired pita bread. The chic blue-and-white space boasts marble tables, cushy leather seats and ring chandeliers, capped with an outdoor patio.

We wandered in without a reservation and we were seated at the bar where we received excellent service. Sometimes when you eat at the bar in restaurants you get neglected or rushed service, this was absolutely not the case at Shaya. The bar tender understood our dietary restrictions and pointed out the vegan items on the menu and was able to suggest alternatives. The food was absolutely delicious. A few small plates was enough to satisfy us and we had a delicious lemon sorbet for desert. The prices were more than fair for us who are used to nyc prices. Would highly recommend!

This is hands down the best Israeli restaurant I've ever been to. The lamb hummus is perfectly seasoned as is the Israeli salad. They have fresh fire pitas and the roasted cabbage is also delicious. Craft sodas are tasty and the cocktails are great as well.

I actually didn't have a good experience at all... The thing is, I didnt have the heart to drop a star rating by how I was treated there. We ordered some press teas which were great and two orders of humus. The humus was good but felt extremely processed (I mean so whipped that it lost all texture). It also had a roasted peanut taste for some reason but as a whole the bread and toppings in the humus were amazing. I recommend the Lamb humus. The thing is it was filled with hipsters and snobby people. Like I said, I can't drop a star for this but the waitress piled it on even worse. She made my wife and I feel unwelcome with snark comments. I personally will never be back (so no need to change for me).
