Zizi Limona, Brooklyn

The rustic-chic Williamsburg restaurant takes its culinary cues from Tel Aviv's bold and boundary-pushing restaurant scene. (Chef Loren Lieberman is an alum of some of Tel Aviv's best, including Herbert Samuel and North Abraxas, among others.) Fittingly, her dishes are at once familiar and exotic—like a plate of smoky baba ganoush blended with an unorthodox but delicious mix of feta, basil, and Serrano peppers, or shakshuka layered with grilled skirt steak. 129 Havemeyer St.; 347-763-1463; zizilimona1.com.
