Au Za’atar is a Lebanese / Middle Eastern restaurant, which has quickly become a dining destination in the East Village and Midtown East, for New Yorkers and tourists alike, serving family recipes from Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries. 

Our menu, which is crafted by Owner/Head Chef Tarik Fallous, highlights the best of Lebanese and Middle Eastern cuisine with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients and homemade dishes. Our signature Original Tableside Shawarma is always a crowd-pleaser. 

Drop in for mezze and a glass of Lebanese wine or beer at our intimate bar, or enjoy a romantic dinner or festive gathering with friends and family in our warm and inviting dining room, allowing the spices and music transport you to the exotic Middle East.   

You can also join us on our beautiful patios, which have been called one of the best outdoor eating spaces in New York, and are open year-round with heaters in the colder months, for your dining pleasure.   

We look forward to welcoming you!
