I came here for dinner last night and had made a reservation for two on open table. It was definitely a quiet evening and part of that might have been due to it being a Tuesday. We sat outside and the heat lamps definitely allowed for eating outdoors to be manageable despite the weather being cold. I had been here a few times pre-covid, but honestly I was blown away by good the food was. We ordered the sharing platter, the meatballs, and the seafood paella. The sharing platter was incredible and the warm pita bread was paired with truly delicious falafel, amazing, hummus and babaganoush. The seafood paella was also better than I remembered when I had had it last and this was despite requesting for the dish to be prepared without butter due to dietary restrictions. It was still delicious and all of the food was super flavorful! I was honestly blown away by how delicious the food was and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend for a date or casual gathering, and very much looking forward to returning when the weather gets a bit warmer.

We stumble at local92 just walking down second avenue after a day in the park. What a gem! The place offers a cozy atmosphere with nicely dimmed light and great selection of music. Our party of 4 tried almost half of the Mediterranean/Israeli dishes and few of the unique cocktails from the bar, and all exceeded our expectations. do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in east village. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience. The food is absolutely amazing – everything we tasted melted in other mouths. Highly recommend!

My experience was great. Went for happy hour tapas and sangria with two friends and the food and outdoor dining experience were both amazing. Would absolutely recommend. We got the cauliflower dish, the hummus, the fries, and the grape leaves!

The food and drinks were wonderful. We split the hummus and artichokes and then each had a main. I had the paella which was delicious and the smoky mezcal drink. The service was great and attentive. Would highly reccomend!

Food was good but not excellent - drinks were very expensive (they discontinued their bottomless brunch which is usually $14 and instead have $50 mimosa pitchers). They appeared to have forgotten about our reservation and pulled another table outside but it was not within the dividers of the outdoor dining space. The service,however, was very nice and quick.

Great food. Waiter was very pushy coming around every two minutes and then when we asked for a dessert menu, he told us that there was no coffee or dessert service that evening even though I saw another table get cake!

We were seated as soon as we arrived. There was good energy in the dining room, a little loud but could still have a conversation. I had a draft beer which was fine and my date ordered an old fashion that she was pleased with it. Aa for the food, we ordered the fried artichokes with a tangy saffron aioli. Loved the sauce! Thought artichokes could've been fried more, fried kale was flavorless and greasy. We loved the meatballs with the pepper & tomato fondue, great flavors all around. The best by far was the grilled calamari. Nicely charred, very tender, spicy chick pea salad bursting with great flavor. We had friendly swift service, noticed lights with kitchen strainers used as coverings. Cool idea! I look forward to returning and trying other dishes..

Food was good, though unbelievably slow. We were the only puppies table when we ordered, so the kitchen could not have been backed up. Hard to imagine why it took so long.

I was disappointed with the stuffed grape leaves. They were too hot to eat when they arrived, and were otherwise flavorless. I've had better from a can. The squash-filled ravioli was also only so-so, at best.
