A word from Zizi Limona
Zizi Limona commits to transport you to grandma’s Middle Eastern kitchen but in the style and comfort that is unique to Williamsburg. Sourcing fresh seasonal and local ingredients, it offers updated versions of many familiar classics like the Cowshuka, poached eggs in shakshuka tomato stew served with skirt steak seasoned with preserved lemons & rosemary. Feast your taste buds on flavors from all four corners of the Mediterranean with crazy Italian style babaganoush, North African Tershi, Israeli style stuffed root veggies, Egyptian roasted vegetable hummus, and a signature oxtail Bureka. Finish with traditional charcoal black coffee and sweeter than sweet Basbosa Semolina cake.

*Expect a $25 dollar minimum per person for all reservations.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, as usual. Short rib especially outstanding. Generous portions. Silan dessert slightly disappointing compared to other spots around town and original in Israel. Noise made conversation very difficult. Can't bring some people here just for that reason."

  • "The food was fresh and delicious and flavorful and every plate we ordered we scraped clean. Our waiter (Chris?) was very helpful with the menu and an entertaining and attentive waiter. We'll definitely be coming back!"

  • "Pretty much everything was spot on at Zizi Limona. The hummus, charred beet/lentil salad, and wild salmon entree were particular standouts."

  • "After waiting over an hour for appetizers and politely asking what was going on, my table of four was greeted with actual screams from the restaurant's owner, who made a scene in front of his entire clientele and yelled at us to get out. As a New Yorker and waitress of many years, I have never seen anything like this."

  • "The meals here are always delicious but unsuspecting by description. They also were wonderfully acomidating to our needs (we had some much older family members) considering how young and hip the restaurant is."

  • "Valentine's Day dining could not have been more enjoyable. Our waiter was amazing, funny and helped to guide our dining experience by suggesting how our order should come out. The food was just spot on, and flirted with haute cuisine mixing with family style middle eastern in a way that elevated the meal. The falafel was off the chain."

  • "I was here last week and it was fantastic. Great, interesting food, great service, and really good prices. My only complaint was that it was a bit cold in the restaurant. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Wow, I was not expecting the caliber food we received from Zizi Limona! Freshly baked little pita breads for the table, we ate several. My dad was so into his lamb pita that he didn't speak to us the entire meal until he was finished. I was nervous that he wasn't enjoying but clearly I was wrong. Everything was amazing, and even more unexpectedly so was the wine which was from Macedonia. Will definitely be revisiting soon!"
