Kish-Kash

OPENED219 DAYS AGO

New York’s highly anticipated restaurant Kish-Kash finally opens its doors in the West Village.

Kish-Kash is the newest concept by chef and restaurateur Einat Admony – the mind behind falafel hit Taïm and Israeli restaurant Bar Bolonat. While the competition is tough in this city dotted with Middle Eastern restaurants – from the new fast-casual spot Dez to Soho staple Shuka – Kish-Kash is New York’s first-ever couscous bar of its kind.

The Spot:

Bringing Tel Aviv tradition to New York, chef Admony uses a special two-part food steamer (a couscoussier) to hand-roll the couscous, before running it through a fine sieve (the kish-kash). The whole process takes up to three hours, but the end result pays off: fluffy, cloud-like couscous, unlike the Americanized instant couscous. Taking inspiration from Shabbat dinners in Isreal, Kish-Kash features a large communal table in the center, while the colorful elements match the flavors and spices of the restaurant’s North African Jewish cuisine.

The Food:

To go with your traditionally made couscous, Kish-Kash offers braised meats, fish and vegetables, including chicken tagine with olives and a three-lemon sauce; short rib with Swiss char; and Moroccan stewed vegetables (turnip, carrot and potato). To start or as a side dish, you’ll find options such as cauliflower with pickled raisins, “Shuk” salad with greens and avocado, or hummus with challah bread.

The Drinks:

Kish-Kash serves wines from Israel and North Africa.

The Damage:

Prices are expected to be standard.

In a Nutshell:

Ever since chef Admony moved to New York 20 years ago, she had been longing for two things: falafel and real Moroccan couscous. As falafel empire Taim has proven to be a big hit in New York, the city is likely to welcome the chef’s couscous bar Kish-Kash with open arms.
