Mediterranean
Zou Zou’s is a lively and modern Eastern Mediterranean restaurant from chef Madeline Sperling, who spent years working at some of the most notable restaurants throughout New York City, including Gramercy Tavern and The NoMad. Sperling is joined by Juliana Latif, who works with her in the kitchen [the duo met and cooked alongside each other at The NoMad]. Together, they have created a menu inspired by and celebrating the cuisine and flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean region, bringing in influences from Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, among others.

Zou Zou’s is located within the Manhattan West Plaza, on the ground level of Pendry Manhattan West. If arriving at 33rd Street (between 9th & 10th), follow the walkway to the plaza, turn left, and find the Zou Zou’s entrance on your left.

    What a fun party, er, I mean, restaurant. Such an infusion of energy, both in the audio atmosphere which is kind of a throwback to Studio 54, and the cheerful and accommodating staff of polished professionals who are as charming as they are knowledgeable about the incredibly creative plates which grace the table. The Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine is filled with all sorts of wondrous combinations of seasoning and spices — and it's all presented with a kind of joy that is associated with a summer resort, even in the dead of winter. BRAVO!

    We Gad a 2:15 PM Saturday Brunch reservation booked by Open Table. Upon arrival they sat us at 2:20 pm only to tell us that the kitchen closed at 2:30 pm. Basically 10 minutes to order food. And The waiter Gad a lot of attitude and his personal Hughes's not acceptable.

    FANTASTIC vibes all around! Gorgeous interior design, very attentive staff, fantastic food though I think a touch too pricy for what it is. The pineapple "cake" dessert and lemon frozen yogurt are absolutely to die for; the cocktails were beautiful.

Recommend for lunch or dinner - this was my third time and it never disappoints! Zou Zou's has quickly become one of my favorite Hudson Yard area restaurants!

    The tables were so close that in order to avoid knocking my neighboring tables plates as I slid into my chair I ended but hurting myself by the sharp table corner poking into my belly. Literally less than 6 inches between tables.

    Zouzous is absolutely amazing. The quality of the food is top notch. You have to try the dips and the hamachi as appetizers. The Duck Borek is heavenly. Almost like a duck dessert. The filet mignon Yemeni Kebab is to die for, and the meat is juicy and tender. This was our anniversary dinner and the staff was so kind, they wrote us a handwritten card and offered us two glasses of complimentary champagne.

    The inside of this place was so cool and I was so excited to try it. But once we got the food things were disappointing. The salads and dips were good. But the main were less than stellar. The lamb main dish tasted only of dough. You couldn’t even taste the lamb. Even when I took the lamb out and ate it by itself, it still didn’t have much of a taste. The service also wasn’t great. The waiters didn’t seem to know much about the menu and drinks. It was like pulling strings asking them questions

    New Year’s Eve brunch with out of town friends. We only had the lunch menu and we were all pleased with our entrees. The chickpea burger was very tasty and did not disappoint. My partner had the Zou burger and said it is now his top favorite burger. We opted for the pitcher of white sangria and although it was delicious it was not what we consider a pitcher so for $46 we did not see the value. The drinks range from $14 and up so it was like getting 1 drink for $10 for 4. Let me say that the oysters were AMAZING and the dips and breads were delicious. I will definitely go back!
