Miriam is neither a falafel hut nor a pita shack. It’s a full-fledged Israeli restaurant, unfussily but comfortably accoutred with linen napkins, capacious wineglasses, and a jazzy soundtrack. The menu is diverse and refined enough to include not only egg-noodle lokshen and kasha but lobster demi-glace and coriander-orange gastrique. What Miriam purveys is a form of fusion: familiar Middle Eastern ingredients and flavors reinterpreted for the sophisticated Park Slope palate. Despite its ambitious food, Miriam clearly aspires to be an unpretentious neighborhood spot. You’re still welcome to linger—over a silky halvah mousse, with pistachio halvah crumbled on top, or a bottle of Israeli wine, which Miriam pointedly lists under the “South Europe” designation, alongside affordably priced selections from France, Spain, and Italy.
