The new Williamsburg restaurant Zizi Limona is now open in the Southside:
Sourcing fresh seasonal and local ingredients, Zizi offers updated versions of Mediterranean home cooked classics like the Cowshuka, poached eggs in shakshuka tomato stew served with skirt steak seasoned with preserved lemons & rosemary, or a 5 hour crispy filo bureka stuffed with slow cooked tender oxtail, black olives, and crushed tomatoes. Try the insanely low priced lunch starter menu as you feast your taste buds on flavors from all four corners of the Mediterranean with crazy Italian style babaganoush, North African Tershi, Israeli style stuffed root veggies, Egyptian roasted vegetable hummus, and a signature oxtail Tanzia. Finish with traditional charcoal black coffee and sweeter than sweet Basbosa Semolina cake, Malabi créme, or shaved Halva.
Zizi features a full bar with a cocktails menu drowned in Arak, Pomegranate, and Mint but also classic cocktails, wine, and beer. Like our famous matriarch, our kitchen is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and offer a customized takeout menu that ensures your food travels well.

There’s also a new gourmet pizza restaurant at 128 Metropolitan Ave. called L’isola, though we’re yet to try it out. Let us know if you have in comments.
