Opened in 1998 by Chef and owner Rawia Bishara, Tanoreen showcases the Middle Eastern home-cooking Rawia ate growing up, with not-so-subtle nods to more modern inspirations. A success from the outset, the restaurant is regularly frequented by locals and tourists from across the city. On the menu, the sayadiyya, or the ‘fisherman’s meal’ is a firm favorite, rice sautéed with shredded Tilapia, caramelized onion, toasted almonds and tanoreen spices, topped with the fillet of the fish of the day. The restaurant also boasts some of the most sophisticated and unique cocktails in the city. The pistachio martini (vanilla vodka, hazelnut, apple and pistachio) is a favorite, combining traditional flavors with a NYC twist.
