MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Powerhouse chef José Andrés' ocean-blue ode to the foods of Greece, Lebanon and Turkey means the mezze menu ranges far and wide, from flatbreads to kebabs to dips. Greek and Lebanese wines are given their fair due on the exceptional wine list.

Zaytinya speaks to the ease and elegance of the Mediterranean—zero in on the grape leaves, garides me anitho and the Turkish braised lamb that tastes like the Sunday roast everyone deserves. The dishes show refinement and skill while still coming off as immensely personal.

Despite the size, the large dining room is sectioned into cozy nooks; solo diners should head to the long bar. The warm service makes it feel especially inviting, likely accounting for the perpetual crowd (so make reservations).
