I did some searching and only find old info. Any not to be missed recommendation in NYC?
Nur - one of my favorites.
Nish Nush (falafel - nothing super original, just good)
Shuka, and the new Shukette
And the number one place on my list right now to go to is Dagon. (I made a rezzie last week and cancelled it to go to Sona. But I plan to go very soon). Read the write up - if you were at all familiar w the Voice of Peace (“no more war, no more bloodshed” “the October war will be the last war” …coming to you from somewhere in the Mediterranean), then you will want to go too.
LamaLo is also really good.

Also check out 12 Chairs. Very traditional Israeli food, jachnoon, malawach, shakshuka. There's also a Palestinian restaurant called Qanoon on 21st and 9th that I keep meaning to check out.
It's funny we spent a week in Morocco and had no memorable food. It happens.
Thanks Risa that is the response I was looking for.
Happy to help. Make sure you have the Panipuri. One of the most creative and delicious dishes in Manhattan.
If you’re willing to head to Brooklyn, there’s a large Arab community in Bay Ridge. That’s where I normally go…you’ll find tons of small, family-run places there, mainly Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian and (to a lesser extent) Yemeni. Stand-outs in my mind include Tanoreen for modern Palestinian; Ayat, also Palestinian, with a mix of street food & home cooking; and for fish (especially grilled - mashwi - preparations), Bahary.
