This small, order-at-the-counter outpost of Taboon in Hell's Kitchen serves the kind of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean food you want to eat every day. We're big fans of the chicken platter and the salmon pita - if you're not taking it to go, the shakshuka is worth a try as well. Taboonette works for a solo meal or a quick casual dinner, as well as for takeout.
