2017: Brooklyn Voted Tanoreen Best Middle Eastern!
7523 Third Avenue (718) 748-5600 www.tanoreen.com
Tanoreen is a household name in its hometown of Bay Ridge. The famed Middle Eastern restaurant, deep-rooted at the corner of Third Avenue and 7Sixth Street, has received critical acclaim since its inception in 1998. The Zagat-rated restaurant, which showcases the Middle Eastern home cooking its chef and owner Rawia Bishara grew up with, has made a name for itself with its out-of-this-world fare. Its menu, which proudly boasts something to please just about any palette, comes complete with Middle Eastern classics like Hummus, Baba Ghanouge and Kibbie, as well as Mediterranean twists on things like Stuffed Cabbage and Brussels Sprouts (a fan-favorite, fried and doused with a tangy tahini-yogurt-pomegranate sauce and topped with panko breadcrumbs). Pair that with its exceptional dessert menu and unbeatable atmosphere and it’s no wonder Tanoreen was named the best in the borough.
