Located at the new Manhattan West development near Hudson Yards, Zou Zou’s is from the same group behind eateries like Don Angie and Smith & Wollensky. Here, chef Madeline Sperling (Gramercy Tavern, The Nomad) and executive sous chef Juliana Latif serve Eastern Mediterranean cuisine inspired with eye-catching presentation. The gorgeous space designed by AvroKO features a wonderful smoky scent wafting from a sizable wood-fired oven via its open kitchen and offers plenty of elbow room, high ceilings, and roomy banquettes while dining on signature dips; mezze; the Little Gems salad with roasted grapes (which are served delightfully cold); Duck Borek with a l’Orange; and Fire-Roasted Leg of Lamb.
The much-anticipated and extremely stylish Zou Zou’s from the Quality Branded team has just debuted in Manhattan West, serving Eastern Mediterranean fare from chef Madeline Sperling (previously of Gramercy Tavern and The NoMad). On the inaugural menu are crispy latkes with frizzled thyme, perfect for the holiday.
