Had a terrific fish special, like my mother's. Myneife had an outstanding beet salad Dessert and Espresso really special. We'll eat here again any time we're in the area. Right near Barclay Center. We had a pre concert dinner

Miriam has great middle eastern inspired food plus the creature comforts you'd expect from a neighborhood restaurant in Brooklyn. We went for brunch. I had herbed eggs served with Israeli salad (tomatoes and cucumbers finely diced in olive oil), labneh cheese (a cross between cream cheese and Greek yogurt) and freshly made pita. Yum!!! And not too fattening. My husband... More

Nice place in Brooklyn, busy and cheerful at lunchtime. We had excellent brunch with different kinds of omelettes, French toast, pancakes. More Mediterranean food is also available on the menu. Good atmosphere

Food was wonderful, fresh, authentic and attractively served. Very generous portions. Lamb, red snapper on basmati rice delicious. Very tight quarters, noisy and shabby. Great service. Try it for a taste sensation, everything is good. Falafel, hummus, roasted egg plant with red peppers and goats cheese. Mmmm

I went to Mariam with friends for brunch and would highly recommend it. I had the lamb shawarma with basmati rice and it was quite delicious.

went there by recommendation. they have excellent white and red sangria- not too sweet, enough alcohol and fruits-yum! We got 6 appetizers for 3 adults. portions were on small side (tasty dips) but filled us until main dishes arrived. Chicken and lamb shawarmas were delicious. Fast service, relaxed atmosphere. definitely worth a try.

Great Mediterranean menu, affordable prices. Reservation recommended. Loved the branzino special, Mediterranean salad, and many meze. I would like to come back for brunch and for happy hour someday.

While visiting my cousin in Brooklyn came here for brunch. It was very busy and while I didn't mind sitting at a table with other people, it caused confusion and the waitress gave us our table mates food. Didn't realize it was theirs (we ordered the same thing) until it was too late. It took them 15 mins to bring... More

If you are looking for a hearty but healthy meal packed full of flavor than look no further than Miriam's. For my money one of the best brunch spots in NYC. The atmosphere is right and the food is superb. Try the shakshuka, the croque Madame on challah bread or the burekas. In all honesty you can't really go wrong... More

We were between basketball games in the A-10 tournament and needed a close quick bite. This fit the bill nicely. It is hard to mess up an egg. I did try the lamb sausage, not a big fan. The eggs Benedict and poached salmon were quite tasty.
