Alenbi Restaurant Review

: Executive chef Elior Balbul mans the stoves at this Crown Heights restaurant serving contemporary Israeli cuisine. In addition to a dining room that offers a view of the open kitchen, the space also accommodates guests at a six-seat chef bar. The menu includes dishes such as “Falafel Deconstructed” with pita, “Fish Off the Hook” (seared branzini) and “Better-Bucco” (slow-cooked lamb shoulder). Among the desserts is a lemon tart. Wine is available.
