THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Combina Restaurant Review

: When chef Einat Admony moved into this SoHo space in November 2015, she noticed something was amiss: there was no storage for food. Look around at the décor as you’re eating Admony’s take on Israeli-Spanish cuisine and you’ll see she has artfully placed food storage on wall shelves throughout the restaurant. Admony, whose other establishments Balaboosta and Bar Bolonat have explored Israeli cuisine throughout the Mediterranean and the Jewish diaspora, lays her spatula in Spain at Combina, where she prepares traditional and inventive small plates: papas bravas (accompanied by a paprika aïoli) is standard, while the salt cod donuts are a study in subtlety. Not subtle is the citrus in the whole grilled shrimp. Crispy yet juicy lamb belly is a carnivore’s delight. Desserts are limited, but do get the banana brûlée with hawaij chocolate ice cream. The wine list is affordable and leans toward Iberia.
