Always look forward to the weekends – Once the school week is over, I always look forward to weekend brunches in Miriams. Everything on the menu is delicious. The fresh made hummus and pita is a yummy appetizer to get ready for the meal ahead. My favorites are the sandwiches and the israeli breakfast.
Rustic Cool & Tasty – My wife and I live in the city and have good friends in Park Slope. We have dined a few times in various restaurants and although we did not know Miriam before we went there…we were pleasantly surprised. The food is a very interesting fusion of authentic Israeli/Mediterranean flavors with a touch of elegance but without being obnoxious. We recommend the Borekas to start with (just be carful because you might want them to keep coming) and my wife had the Mediterranean salad which was very good as well. For our main I had the Lamb Musaka and if you like eggplant this is the dish for you…it was hearty and full of flavor which was great for a cold evening. My wife had the filet of Branzino with a bunch of interesting sauces drizzled on them and she really enjoyed it as well. One other thing to mention is that the wine list was pleasantly elaborate and we were able to pair a terrific wine with our meal. Service was very good but not annoying and it seemed like the owner knew a lot of his customers which is always a good sign. We will definitely come back to Miriam…we love places that are a bit rustic with good food and wine and a cool atmosphere.
I recommend a dinner visit – I know everyone raves about the brunches, but we went to Miriam for dinner and had every little "mezze" appetizer they offer--it was delicious, the food was very fresh and the combinations were very cool--meatballs and a plum sauce was my favorite. Brunch is better if you have kids; for dinner, the restaurant is a lot more romantic, so I would leave the kids at home.
Love it – I try to swing by Miriam every time I'm in Park Slope. The food is great and appropriately priced. I love the mezes and they have a great wine list. Service is always great, too. Also, try the mediterranean salad and knafe for dessert.
one of my regular spots in the slope – I LOVE coming here for dinner, either with a few friends or with my boyfriend, and even by my lonesome. Half price wine (average bottle being $16) definitely draws me in, but the food is so delicious! I love ordering Mezes, especially when I can't make up my mind, they are a fun "try a little bit of everything" meal. The Bronzino is probably my favorite fish dish, and if they have the Lamb Shenk special next time you go... GET IT! yum!
tasty food – We ate there last night. The food tasted good, the decor is funky morrocan and the service was fine. They offered half price wine because it was a weekday. Overall it is well priced.
It is nothing fancy or expensive. The wine came and the waitress screwed off the top. I found this surprising . I expected at least a plastic cork.
We would go back.
Best Brunch on 5th Ave – Miriam is the best place to go in the neighborhood for low-key yet interesting brunch and dinner. The wine list isn't so bad either, and the staff is great too.
bomb... – Mabye a week ago or so I stopped in at Miriam for some dinner and it was good. I had their specia, which was ground beef stuffed onions with a plum sauce and white rice w/ veggies. It was spectacular, the sauce was mild but added just the right complement. I had a botttle of Bordeaux "Cheatue Fage" which was reccomended and fit perfect. For an appetizer I enjoyed an Artchoke Salad that seemed to be short a few articokes but whatever it was still bomb. But dessert it where it was really at. I usually am dissapointed with dessert menus, but they had a apple and pistachio stuffed filo with vanilla ice scream, need I say more?
Awesome Brunch – Miriam has an amazing brunch. They have mastered the art of eggs. I highly recommend the isearli breakfast.
Good for Groups – Went on Saturday in a group of 8 to the new location in Cobble Hill. The waiter was super nice, and our food was great. The folks who ordered the artichokes "stuffed" with meatballs were a bit surprised to see artichoke hearts with meatballs sitting on top when they arrived, but enjoyed them nonetheless. We got a little bit picky about choosing our wine, but our waiter seemed to have an endless amount of patience with us. We sat in the front, but noticed in the back there was a great nook/curtained off area set aside for a larger party coming later that night. It looked like a GREAT place to have a large birthday dinner (for 18 or so). It was the only place in the area that would take a group of 8 at the last minute, but I have a feeling it won't be that way for long!
