Ilili, with Karen

236 Fifth Avenue, NY, NY 10037

In brief: Sophisticated middle eastern food delicately prepared. For when you're feeling flush or need to impress your lunch date.
Ilili has been on our lunch list since we moved to the Flatiron, but we were sort of waiting to have a friend who wanted to try since the joy is in the array of small plates (mezze). We loved the cauliflower, the famed brussel sprouts and of course the french fries. I could have probably also sat there all afternoon munching on the airiest pita shells dipped in their delicate hommus. The space is super serene, with super high ceilings punctuated by wood and light panels. A lovely meal and place to take a business client.
