We all know that Williamsburg is one of the trendiest NY neighborhoods, but there are still quite a few streets that tourists don’t quite yet reach – which is just perfect for us! Zizi Limona is a Mediterranean restaurant in Williamsburg that we really enjoy!
Even though tourists are discovering this street in Williamsburg, it’s still a bit secluded from the craziness of the neighborhood. Havemeyer Street is the home to some pretty amazing dining spots, coffee shops, so we do incentivize you to roam around a bit.
Just note: the street is crosses through Metropolitan Avenue and has a weird shape to it, if you see it on a map.
We recently had lunch at Zizi Limona, that opened in October of 2012.
At Zizi, we felt like we ate a feast! It was delicious and this is what we had:
- Black Cumin Cauliflower on tahini topped with tomato salsa and black cumin seeds
- Charred Beet & Lentil with finely chopped root veggies, raw tahini, silan
- Masabacha with grilled tomato, warm ground chickpeas, tahini, lemon, cumin, parsley
- Hummus with freshly made hot pita bread
- Shishito Peppers with white beans and harissa aioli
- Salad with greens, purple onions, cabbage, cherry tomatoes with a delicious sauce
And, of course we would never skip dessert! We tried a pretty peculiar dish. It was a vegan berries delight with raspberries sorbet, walnut soil, rhubarb jellies and fresh berries. Beautiful presentation and tasty too!
We just love this Mediterranean restaurant in Williamsburg!
After having lunch there, just walk around to explore a bit that part of Willyb.
Go grab a tea at Little Choc Apothecary, where they create all their blends in-house, plus, they have a fantastic selection of “medicinal blends that improves all aspects of your physical, mental, and spiritual health.” Oh! And they are the first and only vegan crêperie in New York! So good!
