Miznon — also in Tel Aviv, Vienna and Paris — specializes in putting things into a big fat thick amazing pita bread. When they recently opened inside Chelsea Market, I was invited with many other writers to sample their goodies.
While sipping on an Arak Mojito ($11), I sampled a variety of their filled pitas. Arak, BTW, is a distilled spirit with an anise flavor, somewhat similar to absinthe.
Back to the main happenings: my two favorites in pita included a blend of wild mushrooms ($11) with scallions and a soupçon of sour cream and, of course, the large deep-fried falafel ($11). Also good are the tender grass-fed minute steak with tahini, tomato salsa, pickle slices ($13.50), the whole roasted cauliflower with only a sprinkling of salt ($11) and the roasted shishito peppers.
Worth a visit.
