Line-inducing pita chain Miznon has kicked open a new, two-story restaurant on the Upper West Side.
The new spot is called Miznon North at 161 West 72nd St., between Amsterdam and Columbus avenues — and it’s a much larger space than its outpost in Chelsea Market. Miznon’s new uptown digs fits 135 diners within two stories, including an outdoor terrace with seating and standing room on the second floor.
It’s still a fast-casual, counter-service operation, although some table service will be provided once people are seated and dining, a spokesperson says. The menu is also more extensive here, with larger plates like rib eye steak brushed with tomato seeds and salmon schnitzel available. See it in full below.
Israeli celebrity chef Eyal Shani brought Miznon to the U.S. last year with a store in Chelsea Market. The pita sandwich spot is considered one of the best in Tel Aviv and drew instant lines shortly after its New York debut.
Once regular hours kick in next week, Miznon North will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and until 11 p.m. on weekends. This Sunday, the restaurant will open only for brunch.
