Miriam has the most inventive assortment of middle eastern food. It's always my go-to restaurant with friends from out of town who are already bored with Italian, sushi, and usual pub fair. The ambiance is casual and comfortable and the menu has options for everyone: from small plates to hardy stews. The wine list is varied and well ranging.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. The food is good. Something for everyone. The decor is nice and the staff is lovely. My only complaint is that it can be loud at times and it is sometimes hard to hear your companions.

NB the restaurant is misplaced on the map, it's not in Manhattan, but in Brooklyn! We had lunch here, which was pleasant. My dish, with fried eggplant was a little on the oily side (always tricky with eggplant), but otherwise OK. My daughter's dish was good, the home made fries were excellent. The wifi did not work. The music (here... More

We dropped in here one night as the menu sounded good and it was busy and lively. We had to wait a short while for a table but it did not take long and we were encouraged by other people being willing to wait! Drinks options were great and the meze was really good sharing food. The chicken shawarma and... More

I ate at Miriam on a Tuesday morning and was shocked that they were serving brunch in the week. I had the 2 eggs a la carte with a salad, potatoes and a side of bacon, it did not disappoint at all! This is probably on the best places to have brunch in Brooklyn period! Coffee also came included with... More

I love this Chicken Schnitzel… Its huge and delicious. It's right near the Barclays stadium. So if you're going to a Nets game or seeing a concert over there this might be the best place possible to grab a bite before hand.

Yes, Miriam does brunch, the long lines prove worthy. However, its wonderful for dinner. I love that I can make the experience feel light and relatively healthy (no health claims here). I often just order the meze and enjoy a plethora of flavors. Some of my favorites include the labaneh cheese, humus, quinoa and watermelon & feta tartar - all... More

Amazing brunch- so hard to choose! I had the Croque Madame, one of my all time favorite comfort foods, but the Herbed Eggs were tempting, as was the Israeli Breakfast. Really cozy and laid back atmosphere. Drinks were a little on the pricey side, but hey, it's NY.

We had a great meal here while visiting in New York. The waitress was very attentive, but not intrusive.

We were staying nearby and so we ate at Miriam a couple of times, and were really impressed both times. First we went for a brunch on a Sat morning, the place was busy so we sat up at the bar. Great coffee, even better steak and eggs and omelettes. The second time was late at night when we popped... More
