Sumary of Miznon, London W1: ‘Nothing about it is wholly serious’ – restaurant review | Grace Dent on rest…:
- It is noisy, staffed by what seems a cast of thousands, set in a charmingly unfussy room and offers high-quality, Tel Aviv-influenced street food.
- Then Miznon pitches up on Broadwick Street after a successful run in Tel Aviv, Paris, Vienna, Singapore, Melbourne and New York.
- At this point in my Miznon voyage, it dawned on me that this is not a forgettable, shabby-chic roll on street food, but instead something engineered for greatness.
- The all-day English breakfast pita with chopped minute steak, lima beans and spicy tomato sauce will drive full-English purists half daft, but then nothing about Miznon is wholly serious or gives a stuff about rules; all they care about is that you bumble back out of the door wholly sated and with your top trouser button loosened.
- It would have been easy to miss Miznon opening in Soho even for a keen follower of restaurants, because it a global chain run by the Israeli celebrity chef Eyal Shani that serves stuffed pitas and sides such as whole roast cauliflower and lima bean stew.
