We were looking for a restaurant that had meat options but also dishes for vegetarians. Miriam fit the bill. Located on a pleasant corner a bit west of the Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens and east of the Barkley Center and downtown Brooklyn, this is a very relaxed restaurant with very good food and service. It has a middle eastern flavor.... More

Not your typical menu. Loved it so much we went back twice. the line up is long on the weekend but well worth the wait and they will call you when your table is ready so we just shopped in the area and before we knew it they called us. We were a large group of 6 the second visit... More

This was a tasty characterful place with a middle eastern flavour. I had a nice feta salad. The service was good. Strong individual identity.

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.
