Maimonide of Brooklyn Restaurant Review

: Taking its name from the poet who looked to nature for nourishment of the mind, body and soul, this Brooklyn vegetarian and vegan establishment is owned by restaurateur Cyril Aouizerate and chef Alain Senderens, while the kitchen is in the hands of chef Neal Harden. Begin with small bites like the baked oyster mushroom and chickpea "nuggets," or perhaps one of the soups, which have a creamy texture but none of the heaviness. The MOBs (an acronym for the restaurant’s name) are the highlight. Reminiscent of a flatbread pizza and a pita (a pitza, if you will) and anointed with a combination of local and farm-grown vegetables along with tofu, fruits, nuts and spreads, the MOBs work equally well as a main course or a dessert, depending on the toppings. Try the "iron man" with its roasted shiitake mushroom, sautéed kale, horseradish aïoli and parsley, or the "belly charmer," a tagine of eggplant, zucchini and carrot, Moroccan spices, pistachio, mint and cilantro. Eclectic, urban-inspired artwork line the dining room walls, and one-of-a-kind glass lamps hang over communal tables. The vast open kitchen, however, takes center stage. The immaculate space, overlooking a casual bar, will inspire confidence in any diner.
