About

Located in the West Village, Bar Bolonat offers an exuberant celebration of modern Mediterranean and new Israeli cuisines. Bold flavors and spices are staples on Chef Einat Admony’s playful, seasonally-inspired menu. Sharing is encouraged when selecting from small plates, appetizers and entrees. Menu offerings change often, and we use local, seasonal, sustainably harvested produce where possible.

The Wine list features an array of small production from various Mediterranean countries, including Israeli wines, high-quality selections with an emphasis on traditional and natural winemaking. Our wine list is hand-chosen for flavor, uniqueness and tradition.

Bar Bolonat can host parties for up to 20 guests in the private dining room, and the full restaurant is available for large private functions for lunch or dinner. The full restaurant can accommodate up to 55 guests for seated events and up to 75 guests for cocktail receptions.

Creative, delicious food - quite a different cuisine. Liked that all the plates are shared so that you could sample more items. Cauliflower, eggplant and lamb kebabs were the highlights. Warm service - a little loud. Will definitely go back!

A lovely representation of a fine cuisine, with all its variety and uniqueness fully displayed. The appetizers were especially good, with particularly fond memories of the eggplant and the gnocchi.

Low key West Village gem that serves a modern take on Israeli/Middle Eastern cuisine in a small very casual chic setting. A not to be missed NYC dining experience.

Get out of the rut and go to Bar Bolonat. High standard of food quality... made to order. Jerusalem bagel, everyday cauliflower and wild mushrooms with pasta are show stoppers. Nice environment

The food was underwhelming .I admit my infrequency that I eat Israeli food may not give me the right to judge but when I compare to Shaya in New Orleans there is no comparison .

Bar Bolonat offers a variety of interesting dishes from Israel and the Eastern Mediterranean. Fried olives are an interesting and unique appetizer. Food would be familiar to someone familiar with Mediterranean cooking, but several dishes were very interesting and new to me. Preparation is excellent.

Bar Bolonat offers a wonderful dining experience from the moment you are greeted by the host until the moment you must regrettably leave. The menu is exciting and varied and diverse, and the food delicious. And different---- like nothing I could make in my kitchen. Check out the menu on the website for further explanation!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a martini, and glasses of delicious white sangria and Somek White chardonnay. There were so many other enticing options. Next time.
The service was perfect. I mean perfect ----regarding timing and pace, attentiveness, assistance and advice, replacing plates and silverware in between courses and just plain congeniality.
It was Saturday night, there was a party of about 20 at one long table, and so the noise level was somewhat high. But not to the point where you couldn't easily hold a conversation.
With all the fine restaurants in NYC, I cannot wait to return to Bar Bolonat.

Really loved the Japanese eggplant and cauliflower plates. The shishito peppers and fatoush salad were just ok. The chicken and short rib were also very good! Great service. Good place to catch up with friends.
