Many restaurants boast of inspired flavors and technique, but few flaunt such cooking prowess as Maydān—a veritable showstopper whose roaring hearth verges on wildfire. The precision required of the team may be consuming and cooking technique elemental, but the results are delicious bliss. À la carte is available, but the prix-fixe is a popular feast, with bread and spreads; veggies and meats; and a dessert to round it out. Flatbreads with muhamarra, hummus and smoked mutabal is a meal unto itself; while tahini-coconut rice pudding with candied cardamom makes a compelling finish.
Guests seated in this rustic space—with patterned wood and lofty ceilings—are made even more comfortable with an array of singular Middle Eastern-inspired sips and labels.
Work in progress.
