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, Doha at The Pearl and Dubai, Downtown.

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.

We love Armenian food and we were delighted to find this gem. The food is very authentic. The salads are Very fresh. The Tabbouli was fantastic. The Basterma was very tasty. The Armenian Kafka was a discovery. The Soujouk flambé is a must. At the end of the meal, we had the superb Maamul with cheese( order ahead of time since it takes a while to cook it).
Pair your desert with some Armenian coffee. The service is impeccable . Will come back when in NYC.

The food was good. The waitstaff friendly and informative. The meals were served in a timly manner. Altogether, I was very satisfied with everything except that it took very long to get change. That might just have been a glitch.

As an Armenian, finding authentic, GOOD Armenian food is almost impossible outside my family's dinner tables. Almayass is spot on with nearly everything we ate, and I was channeling my grandmother the entire time. The dolma was delicious, though I normally don't use eggplant because it tends to be too soft. The tabouli was excellent without too much bulgur wheat. The Armenian salad was also refreshing, a little heavy on the dressing on both but the taste was spot on. For me, the star of the show was the mantee (we call it manta). There is a very unique, specific taste to good mantee. Having spent hours on a Sunday with my granny and great aunt stuffing tiny boats until we ran out of pans. Oh how I miss those days - and this brought all of it back. Almayass mantee truly delivers, even served dry in a small skillet. The madzoon (yogurt) sauce was perfect, and the taste brought back my childhood in spades. The meats were to. die. for. I don't know what they do, but the lamb melted in my mouth like it was butter. The chicken blew away my 16 year old picky son, and he asked how come I didn't cook like that? (Uh, good question.) The only let down was the rice pilaf. Too dry, not enough butter. But, a small price to pay for an otherwise excellent meal. Dessert was baklava bites, yummy without the syrup which tends to get too sweet for me. It's served on the side, making it easy to adjust to taste. We tried the tiny candied eggplant, which is better left on the menu that on your plate. The coffee was perfect, and the service was above and beyond. Friendly, attentive, lovely people. The place is absolutely beautiful and the warm colors make it somewhere you want to stay, and return to often. At the prices (about $280 with tax, tip for 3 of us), it may be only once or twice in a lifetime, but worth it. Granny would be happy.
