Almayass NYC is a a blend of modern Lebanese & Armenian cuisine owned and operated by the Alexandrian family. Rooted in Lebanon with locations in Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait City, Doha at The Pearl and Dubai. Almayass first arrived on the New York restaurant scene in 2012 and immediately was a hit and gained a loyal following for it’s upscale food and wines, yet fun casual family vibe with terrific service. In 2017 it continues to impress with new menu options focusing on sharing of small plates, authentic Armenian dishes and Armenian artwork displayed through the entire restaurant.
Our meal began with a variety of salads and their famous hummus dishes including our highly recommended favorite Hummus with cauliflower. Followed by the freshly made hot feta with oven baked feta cheese, vine tomato, oregano & spicy red peppers. The spicy potatoes were seasons with fresh garlic & cilantro. Another house favorite and a must try was the Mantee Traditional with meat, spinach option available. The Chef’s special is marinated diced filet mignon with the chef’s special sauce, and is a tasty option for any meat lover.
For the main course we recommend the Bronzini fillet with a sesame based sauce cooked with onion, cilantro and garnished with Almond. The Alaskan Sablefish (Black Cod) is tender and flaky served with baby spinach. The lamb chops were cooked just right served with brussel sprouts and cauliflower puree.
Our meal was accompanied wines, specialty cocktails, and authentic Armenian Cognac.
