You Need To Try The Tableside Shwarma At Au Za'atar Before A Show at Joe's Pub
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Deliciously aromatic and fragrant, za’atar is an age-old Mediterranean spice mixture that you may have a passing familiarity with. In the Middle East, it’s used to flavor everything from pitas, to hummus, to grilled lamb. At Arabian-French bistro Au Za’atar, the menu pays homage to the range of intense flavors that make up traditional Lebanese cooking, highlighting, of course, za’atar’s ability to add depth and delight to Lebanese cuisine. Whether you come for mezze and a glass of wine or a romantic dinner a la date night proper, you’ll enjoy fresh, seasonal ingredients in a warm and inviting dining space. For an experience that’s both delicious and uniquely Instagrammable, try the rotating tableside shwarma, which involves an 8 inch chef’s knife, a glorious tower of meat, and the most Boomerang-worthy of shots.
Once you’ve sampled your way through the Middle East, head to Joe’s Pub for absolutely whatever they're put on their beautiful calendar. We've never met a Joe's Pub show that we didn't like. See the full Joe's Pub calendar for future performances bound to captivate with melodrama and musicality, and that promise to be nothing short of enchanting. Pre or post-show, head up to The Library for a house cocktail (we like Romance in Durango). And even cooler than that: you can continue to order whatever you want to eat or drink during the show.
