Balaboosta

Balaboosta - A Yiddish term meaning the perfect housewife, homemaker, wonderful mother, cook & gracious hostess. She does it all and she does it well!

Step into Einat’s home away from home decorated in rustic details and vintage family photos. This “Mediterranean meets Middle East” restaurant has a diverse and playful menu that draws inspiration from Chef/Owner Einat Admony's Israeli roots. Here at Balaboosta, Einat will literally and figuratively fill the role of a traditional Balaboosta.

"We came in for lunch at 12:15 and we were the only ones in the restaurant. A little after 1pm our waiter said our food would be out in a few minutes. 10 minutes later I asked what was happening, as we had seen several tables come in after us, get their meals, and leave. He said there was a "problem in the kitchen." We finally got our plates at 12:15, nearly an hour after we had sat down. We ordered the Jersualem Street Fair and Kibbe Soup, which were both very good, but nothing fantastic. We both felt it lacked some middle eastern flavor. Maybe we shoudl have gotten hummus. I had been dreaming about Balaboosta for months, and I thought it would be one of the highlights of our trip to New York. We were very disappointed."

"Had a wonderful brunch with out-of-town guests. Food/service/ambiance was just terrific. They loved it and I know they'll return when they are back East. I will always enjoy Balaboosta."

"Had a reservation for 4, two of my friends cancelled very late. I arrived and let the hostess know, she sighed overwhelmingly and after an excruciating silence she let me know that she could only sit me after a 45 minute wait. I didn't understand since I actually reduced the amount of people. There was an empty 4 person table behind her when I arrived, there was an empty 4 person table behind her 25 minutes later. After 35 minutes she once again refused to let my guest and me sit down, so I left. she did not apologize.
Also great hummus. love their hummus. Shame about the hostess.

"We have been coming every few months for years, and bringing local and out of town friends and family. We have noticed that despite reservations we are virtually always seated at the obliquely oriented table in the center of the room, where we are constantly buffeted by elbows and other body parts. This time, we asked to be moved to an open table along the wall, but were told that the four top was being held for people who had increase their reservation to 5. These people finally showed up an hour and a half into our uncomfortable meal (my purse spent most of the evening knocked to the ground). The hostess was not only unaccomodating, she was quite unpleasant and ultimately snippy. Server was lovely and food as always great, but our experience was very diminished."

"The chicken was good but everything else was mediocre. Service was slow and inattentive. There were 5 of us so we had a good array of dishes to try. The bill came to $40 per person and the meal left us hungry."

"Outstanding food and service. The hanger steak is my absolute favorite (I can't help but always order it!!!!). Our waiter went above and beyond to make sure our experience was on point. Would recommend to anyone looking for an exceptional dining experience."
