Gazala's Place Restaurant Review

: A tiny spot on a Hell's Kitchen avenue filled with restaurants, Gazala's Place falls a bit under the radar. The cuisine is that of Israeli Druze, a Middle Eastern fare filled with lots of rich spreads and savory flaky pastries. With just half a dozen tables, it's suitably dark and cozy for a date, and most of the dishes are meant for sharing. The “Gazala Platter” includes nine spreads and appetizers with plenty of bread. Among “Big Plates” is the “Moshakal” offering a combination of lamb, chicken and kafta with rice and salad. A few date cookies are a short and sweet ending to such a varied meal. The restaurant is BYOB so feel free to show up with your favorite bottle of wine.
