Mint Kitchen

OPENED260 DAYS AGO

Fast-casual restaurant Mint Kitchen brings Isreali-inspired cuisine to Union Square.

Mint Kitchen is the latest venture by Israeli chef and Game Of Chefs judge Erez Komarovsky, serving up healthy and affordable Israeli fare.

The Spot:

Designed by CRÈME Jun Aizaki Architecture & Design (of Mr Purple), Mint Kitchen’s dining room has a modern aesthetic consisting of an airy space full of greenery and hanging plants, light wooden elements and plenty of seating options – all centered around the open kitchen. Hang out, eat and chat on the tiered seating to watch the chefs in action, or by the leather banquettes, if that’s more your style.

The Food:

The menu highlights so-called composed meals with salads and sides — all of which are cooked in the taboon oven because nothing (we repeat, nothing) at Mint Kitchen is fried. Staples include warm jaffa hummus (served with roasted mushrooms and galilee pita), falafel-crusted salmon with tahini, and Mattat Salad (roasted cabbage, pea tendrils, roasted apples, almonds and honey). There’s also herb and pine nut matzo ball soup for those brutal winter days and vegan chocolate-tahini truffles for when you’re craving something sweet.

The Drinks:

Mint Kitchen aims to be a healthy destination, so this isn’t your spot for a beer or cocktail. Instead, there’s old-fashioned Israeli soda made with fresh fruit and herbs, called season gazoz. Choose from four different gazoz options: green (cucumber, green apple, lemon, cilantro), red (strawberry, orange mint), orange (nectarine, pomegranate, mint), and purple (hibiscus, lemon, and mint).

The Damage:

Dishes range between $4.50 and $16.

In a Nutshell:

Located right by Union Square, Mint Kitchen is definitely worth trying for lunch if you work in the area, or if you simply want something healthy that isn’t sweetgreen.
