Kubaneh, and Jerusalem Bagel are homemade, and there is a section of creative salads and entrees including Levantine “Caesar” with tahini anchovy dressing, parmesan, fried chick peas, toasted sesame, and anchovy tempura; Harissa BBQ Chicken with potato sumac puree, local greens, and Whole Roasted Branzino cooked over charcoal, with preserved lemon butter, and celery root.

    Loved our first experience at Dagon. Beautiful space (we ate indoors) with a nice bar and comfortable seating. Especially enjoyed the lively mediterranean music playing which transported us out of the city! We had a nice bottle of white wine and then three of the mezze and bread which were delicious followed by the "Cuban Cigar" a light filo dough cigar with cheese and herbs filling and also ordered the dumplings which were ok but not spectacular. Highly recommend.

    After an (almost) rough start where the hostess wouldn't seat my 3 guests (I was running a few minutes late), we had a wonderful meal outside. The food is all very good. And they do their best with the outdoor seating given the challenges of being right on Broadway. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We'll be back.

    The foot was terrific and, overall, everybody had a good time. However, the waitress was a bit surly, too busy with another table (a larger party) to devote adequate attention to taking the order in a timely fashion, delivering utensils in a timely manner (while the food was still hot), although very quick to deliver the bill.

    While we really like this neighborhood place, the noise level makes it almost unbearable to want to return. Hard surfaces and music cranked up much too loud to make conversation possible. As a result everyone shouts adding to the din.

    I don't know...when there are three of you at a small table, and you can't hear what your tablemates are saying, that's too loud for me. Like frat house mixer loud. The place definitely has energy. The service was quite good and the food, was, well okay. We did all small plates which ranged from really good to really unimpressive. On the top end, the dumplings were delicious and the spicy, fried potatoes were yummy. The chicken liver pate tasted good but the portion actually looked like what was left over scraped around the side of the very small serving dish. The tuna tartare, also tasty, also very short on tuna and long on spicy peppers. The "flash-fried" cauliflower might have been flashed some time before it was served and the seared octopus, one of my favorites, was flat out disappointing. I love this kind of food but there are probably quieter places with food that is better.
