Almayass

We are proud to introduce a distinguished culinary experience to the refined palates of New York City with the infusion of authentic Lebanese cuisine and the exotic flavors of traditional Armenian dishes.

The story of Almayass began in Beirut in 1996 by the Alexandrian family, third generation Armenians, who had a passion to share and serve their culinary delights. Ever since, the restaurant has come to the attention of The New York Times, New York Magazine, Food & Wine Magazine, Los Angeles Times and many other international publications as a ‘must go’ destination for an Armenian-Lebanese dining experience. In recent years, Almayass has expanded in the Middle East with locations in Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait City and Doha at The Pearl.

Our inviting location in New York City’s bustling Flatiron district boasts a large dining room as well as a separate bar and lounge area. Reservations are highly recommended.

"The restaurant is cozy and intimate. I dined alone and did not feel out of place.
My dishes were tasty...I enjoyed the spinach Mantee.
The server was attentive and courteous.
Next time I will visit the lounge/bar!"

"Fantastic Restaurant week menu - we will be back for regular dining. The chicken livers in pomegranate sauce and hummus were excellent appetizers. The fish and filet dinners were equally top-notch. A Lebanese chardonnay paired nicely."

"This restaurant features Lebanese/Armenian food which is both tasty and plentiful. It also features Middle-Eastern wines, not easily found in Manhattan. The large crowd, including Middle-Easterners, prove the popularity of the restaurant. There were some glitches in the service we received, which I mentioned to the Host; as a result, I received a phone call from the owner apologizing for the incident. It was very gratifying to know that he cared enough to make that personal contact. Even though this was our first visit to Almayass, I know we will be back to enjoy more of the delicious food."

"The service was top-notch, as we had already heard. Everyone was attentive, keen to help and give the guests a wonderful experience. All of them knew our names, attention to detail being something I am a very big fan of.
The food is fantastic, the wine list is exquisite, cocktails are perfectly prepared. Being already familiar with the cuisine we all agreed it was the best Middle Eastern restaurant we had been to.
Thank you Almayass for creating such a memorable experience.

"I had a 30 person birthday dinner and it couldn't have gone any smoother. Mario, the general manager and co-owner, was extremely helpful in crafting the perfect menu. Service was top notch and very accommodating for a party of this size. I highly recommend!"

"Everything was first rate except the service was over the top. The waiter asked if we meant to order the same entrées, which we did. He was a little obsequious and annoying. But we all loved the food. The eggplant app was the best I've ever had. Loved the koftE too. Interesting wine list that was expertly curated. I've been there before and I'll be back. I just want a different waiter."

"Delicious.
Unusual combination of Lebanese and Armenian. Wonderful selection of hot and cold appetizers. Many veg options. I also contacted the restaurant 2 weeks ahead of my reservation to make a specific request (to make a dish vegetarian). They accommodated my request and it was delicious.

"Best middle eastern restaurant that I have been to in NY. Reminds me of some great London restaurants. The food was very tasty, the menu was broad enough to be interesting and the interiors were nicer than their photos would indicate. The hostess and servers were all very attentive and clearly wanted to make sure that we enjoyed our visit!"

"Classic Lebanese/Armenian cuisine in a silky smooth setting. Food was exceptional, service was terrifc, atmosphere of this place is off the charts. Kudos to management and staff for making this special"

"Went for restaurant week, dessert was the best, main dish was a lot of rice with a mini filet of fish. Appetizers were ok."

"This is my second time at Almayass, and my date and I were thoroughly impressed. The staff is very attentive, polite, considerate, and accommodating (which you don't see in many places these days), the food is DELICIOUS and prepared the correct way, and the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and perfect for dates.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, and I definitely would return!"

"This was a first time visit in conjunction with Restaurant Week as we like to try different restaurants who are participating. The experience was rewarding and we will be back again. It is a convenient location close to Madison Square. Service and attention was wonderful in explaining the different food choices. We enjoyed them all."

"We went for restaurant week, which was a good thing as their everyday prices were even higher. For middle eastern food no better than one can find at a felafel stand. The place is pretty but service was uneven--when it was not crowded, service was annoyingly in your face. Once it got crowded, we could never find a server."

"Came here for Restaurant week, left full. So that's a good thing. The Hummus was some of the best I have had. Lamb Chops done perfectly as was the Fish and Chicken, the spicy potatoes appetizer dipped in the Hummus was the winner."
