Moustache

212-228-2022  •  $$
ADDRESS: 265 E 10th St, (bet Ave A and 1st Ave), New York, NY 10009

CUISINE: Middle Eastern, Late-Night Dining, Sandwiches

FEATURES: Handicap Access, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly, Cash Only, Kid Friendly

DETAILS
A step up from hole in the wall but obscure enough to pat yourself on the back for finding it, Moustache serves up some of the freshest jazzed-up versions of Middle Eastern classics around. The tiny, original West Village spot, with its lovely outdoor courtyard and distinctive brass tables, and two sister locations (in the East Village and East Harlem) offer out-of-the-oven pita bread and a version of baba ghanoush that defines the dish like Project Runway defines style. The trademark "pitzas" are always a hit, but we recommend the excellent lentil soup or any dish with lamb. Service is not the quickest in the city, so plan accordingly. Cash only. Reservations not accepted. Beer and wine available. Serving lunch Sat-Sun, dinner and late-night daily.
"It's not unlikely to see a line outside this no-reservations spot. But it's worth the wait. The freshly baked pitas, still puffed up with hot air when served, never fail to elicit oohs and aahs. ... You could easily fill up here for $15 per person - no small feat in this tony locale."

"Moustache, with its brick oven and copper-topped tables, is a charming place to escape to for a festive assortment of the restaurant's fresh, flavorful salads, dips, breads and Middle Eastern 'pitzas.' 
New York magazine.

"These small, excellent Middle Eastern restaurants specialize in 'pitzas' exceptional pizza-like dishes made with pita dough, including lahmajun, the Turkish specialty with a savory layer of ground lamb on crisp crust, and zaatar, a crisp individual pizza topped with a smoky, aromatic combination of olive oil, thyme, sesame seeds and sumac."
