Little Ada

Middle Eastern cuisine is having a moment in NYC, and for good reason: The bold, irresistible flavors of za’atar and harissa leave us salivating for more. Home restaurant Miss Ada is leading the way under chef Tomer Blechman. Whether concocting a swirl of whipped labneh or a bubbling pan of shakshuka, Blechman draws on his Israeli background for crowd-pleasers like baba ganoush and hummus while adding a creative touch (think eggplant dip with ginger aioli and sweet potato hummus). You could easily make a meal out of Little Ada’s dips, but why would you stop there when the chicken shawarma beckons?
