Miznon North is an Israeli restaurant with sister locations in Tel Aviv, Paris, and a counter-service spot in Chelsea Market we like a lot. Unlike the other NYC version, this 72nd Street restaurant is full-service and massive. While it’s fun and busy in here, it doesn’t get too loud - which makes it a great place a dinner with a group or just someone you’ve been married to for thirty years. Miznon’s Middle Eastern food is simple and excellent, and utilizes olive oil, garlic, and fresh tomato in almost every dish on the menu. We especially like the run-over potato (which comes smashed as thin as wedding invitation cardstock) and the golden whole fried branzino in a pan full of roasted vegetables.

That's right, another Infatuation review for yet another location of The Smith. Why? Because The Smith is always there when you need it to be. Sometimes for the food. Sometimes for the bathroom. Either way, it's there, and it's good.
