Mokum

OPENED28 DAYS AGO

All-day restaurant Mokum opens its doors on the Upper West Side.

The Yiddish word for “safe haven”, Mokum is set out to be a neighborhood restaurant with a welcoming ambiance and a locally-focused menu to match.

Mokum - Lobster Casserole

The Spot:

While Mokum is the brainchild of fine-dining chef Ben Vaschetti (of Le Cirque) with health connoisseur Tea Zegarac Pollock, the restaurant evokes the comfort of your own home – in both the design and menu. The space is warm and welcoming, complementing home-style cooked meals that nourish the soul.

Mokum - Curried Cauliflower

The Food:

The menu is ever-changing, balancing light vegetable dishes with large mains. Start at their counter for pecan-roasted Brussel sprouts and maple-glazed butternut squash, or head straight to hefty plates of NY strip steak (served with farro-stuffed bell pepper), red snapper (in a pinto-bean stew), and roasted chicken Provençal (served with potatoes).

Mokum - Pan-Fried Gnocchi

The Drinks:

Mokum offers a small yet carefully-chosen selection of wines, as well as cocktails. Try their take on the Old Fashioned, made with coffee liqueur and chocolate bitters, or the “Bamboo Cocktail” (fino sherry, dry vermouth, orange and angostura bitters).

Mokum - Shakshuka

The Damage:

Dishes vary between $12 and $38; cocktails are priced at $14.

In a Nutshell:

The Upper West Side has never been a popular destination for dinner, but Mokum is definitely worth checking out – whether you live in the area or not.
