The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

When we were brainstorming vegetarian options for the Serious Eats Sandwich Festival, the crisp-shelled, light-on-the-inside falafel from Taim immediately came to mind.

Obvious next question, have you bought your tickets yet? More

Balaboosta: Refined Middle Eastern Fare from the Owner of Taïm

Carey Jones 5 comments

There's more than a bit of tongue-in-cheek in the naming of Balaboosta, the new Nolita Middle Eastern restaurant from Einat Admony. The term translates to "the perfect housewife," Admony has been quoted as saying. But I've yet to see the "housewife"—at least, one without a formal culinary background—who can turn out dishes of Balaboosta's sophistication. More
