Hey everyone! I discovered this place around Union Square a few weeks ago, and I’ve had lunch there several times ever since. It’s delicious!
Drawing on the cuisine we have become known for at our popular Taboon Restaurant… we have created a clean comfortable space that captures the warmth of a rustic kitchen in a modern quick service sandwich shop. The emphasis here is on fresh articulated flavors and ingredients from our signature “Middleterranean” pallet, merging the kitchens of the Middle East and Mediterranean with some home-style recipes and our love for hospitality.

The first time I went, I had a breakfast menu with salmon and egg on a pita bread. I had never tried anything like that, and it was really good. I mean it.
Soon I discovered my new favorite thing here: brisket. I’ve had it on pita bread to go, I’ve had the platter with rice and salad, and I’ve had it on a wrap… all equally delicious! For those of you who don’t know what brisket is (like myself a few weeks ago) here’s a Wikipedia definition:
Brisket is a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of beef or veal. The beef brisket is one of the nine beef prime cuts, though the precise definition of the cut differs internationally.
At Taboonette you can have brisket for $10-14 depending on how you order it. All are worth the price! The meat is really tender, and it’s a great warm lunch.
You can find this place at 30 East 13th street, with University Pl. Very close to Union Square. I really recommend this for breakfast and lunch, they’re breakfast menu is great and they have great prices for such good food. Check it out at taboonette.com.
Let me know what you think if you try it! You might find me there having lunch. Thanks for reading and see you soon!
