If you work in the Financial District, visit Nish Nush, a Mediterranean eatery specializing in vegetarian and vegan cuisine. A Hebrew term for snack, Nish Nush offers a contemporary option for health conscious New Yorkers who value quality, taste and efficiency.
I visited the new restaurant recently and met one of the owners, Eyal Asulin, who introduced me to several of the menu’s highlights. The soup of the day was delicious and a Mediterranean platter that followed with Moroccan carrots, roasted beets, baba ganoush, humus, three types of gluten free falafel, tahini and schug gave me great energy for the rest of the day.
Everything at Nish Nush is made daily with high quality produce including kosher and gluten-free options at reasonable prices. The pita bread is also baked daily on the premises.
Succumb to the temptations. Try a sandwich with green falafel, hummus, Israeli salad, tahini made fresh on the spot and sit on a high stool at one of the beautifully designed community tables in the open space of the restaurant. The sophisticated décor is accented with dark wood and subtle lighting creates a relaxing atmosphere where you can read undisturbed or enjoy a conversation with fellow guests.
This is the second Nish Nush restaurant is owned by Eyal Hen, with partners Eyal Auslin and Shai Sudai. Their other location opened in Tribeca in 2012.
