Village Voice's Description

Mulberry Street used to mean suffering through bland penne alla vodka or lackluster veal Marsala. But now it"s an oasis for omnivores, in part thanks to Balaboosta, Einat Admony"s lively and unpretentious Mediterranean bistro whose name means "the ideal housewife" in Yiddish. Small plates and appetizers shine--try the quinoa with lemon and dried cranberries, the smoky eggplant bruschetta, and the grilled pizza topped with bright carrot puree and goat cheese. The carnivorous, meanwhile, should tuck into the grilled lamb chops dressed with Persian lime sauce. Yep, Little Italy just got a little less Italian.

    Is 2010 the year of the meatball? We picked our 9 favorites in the new Cheap Eats issue, including the grass-fed beef ones coated in falafel, served here.

    Delicious, fresh, Mediterranean fare in a homey setting at an affordable price. What more could you want? [Eater 38 Member]

    There’s more than just falafel at Einat Admony’s charming Nolita spot, says Adam Platt, who chose it as one his best new restaurants in Where to Eat 2011!

  • The New York Times on 06/29/10

    You’ll want some smoked eggplant, hummus and a carrot-puree pizza before the chicken under a brick. If this be healthy eating, eat on!

  • Metromix on 03/25/10

    The team from West Village falafel joint Taim go upscale and ambitious. Try housemade pickles, grilled merguez, plus mains like Lamb Two Ways
