I love the Turkish flair here. While standard American fare is fully available, I adored the Mediterranean plate where I got to pick and choose among roasted red peppers, olives, Greek yogurt, eggs, and Turkish cheese. Of course, how can one resist butter and honey...More

Like others, ended up here due to the line at Penelope's, but wow! Delicious Mediterranean omelet full of veggies and feta, served with green salad and herby cold potatoes. Birthday boy enjoyed his eggs with spicy lamb sausage immensely. Staff is superb, atmosphere is charming....More

Lallisse is one of the select wine bars in NYC, a haven for real wines, naturally made without cosmetics or chemistry, sprung from the vineyards and ancient cultures of the Mediterranean. It's a place to enjoy simple, soulful and sustainable Mediterranean food and talk for hours over organic, biodynamic and sustainable wines. Lallisse offers 100 types of wines - approximately 40 by the glass options. Lallisse's unique selection features wines from France, Italy, Spain and the Fertile Crescent - Eastern and Western Anatolia (Turkey), Greece, Israel and Lebanon. After spending extensive hours of wine tasting and going through hundreds and hundreds of bottles we created a list consisting of artisan wines produced by old and historic estates of the Mediterranean run by small organic producers. It's simply the stuff the locals drink! In the spirit of friendship and love for the life, food and wines of the Mediterranean, we happily invite you to do the same.
