In a city full of Middle Eastern food carts, Israeli celebrity chef Eyal Shani’s Chelsea Market restaurant goes beyond serving just the regional classics. Shani’s known for pillowy pita bread, but instead of the usual suspects (shawarma, falafel), Miznon fills it with ratatouille, hake, and even a cheeseburger. The whole roasted cauliflower, which is first pressure-cooked in salt water, then roasted whole with just olive oil, is served with Israeli-imported tahini and is absolutely delicious.
