Kubeh refers to a Middle Eastern dumpling that this casual spot on 6th Avenue is based around. The kubeh here are filled with beef, lamb, fish, or vegetables, and served in your choice of four soups. The outside texture is almost like that of a matzo ball, and the soups are really, really good - we can see ourselves eating them all winter. They also serve a few platters like chicken schnitzel and some excellent mezze dips, as well as shakshuka during the day. This place is a sleeper hit, and somewhere we can’t wait to get back to.
