If you’ve been to Tel Aviv or Paris, someone has probably told you to try Miznon. Or at least they should have. This place specializes in putting delicious things into delicious pitas, and now they have their first U.S. location in Chelsea Market (they’re also in Vienna and Melbourne now, if by any chance those are more convenient for you). The pita fillings range from crispy rib eye to corned beef to eggs or ratatouille, and they’re all really good. The whole roasted cauliflower is also better than cauliflower has any right to be. The space isn’t anything fancy and is best used for a quick lunch, but they do have a bar that would also work for a casual dinner.
