For several years, brothers Max and Eli Sussman were on the move, bringing their Middle Eastern concept, Samesa, to Ruschmeyer’s in the Hamptons and to Brooklyn beer halls Berg’n and Threes Brewing. Now they’ve settled down with a permanent location on Lorimer Street in Williamsburg. This is a casual spot: The space, designed by the MP Shift, includes a market area with provisions and refrigerated to-go items, but there’s also enough space for you to sit down and enjoy a pita wrap while it’s still hot. You can choose between chicken shawarma, braised lamb, fish kofta, zucchini fritters, or “A Sandwich Odyssey: 2025,” which comes with beet-pickled eggs and the cook’s choice of dips and salads. The menu also includes tahini Caesar salad, fries with garlic sauce, and za’atar chicken wings with labneh-ranch dressing.
