This is really cute spot in the upper East side with such a welcoming energy. The staff and chef and owners were very friendly and take pride and have passion in their cusine and restaurant. It was really good to see that.Their menu highlights tastes of Israeli, Moroccan, Lebanese cuisine infused with flavors from Provence, France.This was our line up;Lashevet Salad salatine summer greens with kale, bulgur, and crispy onions. Really good salad. Generous portionBissara Soup with dried fava beans, cumin, smoked paprika, and olive oil. Tasted good. Personaly world have preferred some layering in the soup. Maybe some lentils or pieces of meat or bread.Lamb Meatballs Skillet with cherry tomato sauce, saffron, and green peas. M. The folks next to me finished the dish. Dish looked great. I would have preferred less tomatoes.Presentation was great.Mehayam goat cheese-crusted bakkafrost salmon with pepper coulis,beet hummusand tahini cauliflower. This dish was outstanding! my favorite . The layering of flavors. Im not a slamon fan but this was really good. The cauliflower was wow. The beet hummus and pepper coulis gave it great layering!Basbousa Cake was the owners wedding cake coconut yogurt semolina cake with soft cheese. Its a NY cheese cake and and Israeli cheescake fusion..i loved it as it wasnt too sweet. I also like semolina.I will definitely go.back again.The below was shared by the restaurant while at dinner.When translated from Hebrew, the word “Lashevet has two meanings: “Lashevet” is “To Sit / To Settle” – The Lashevet Team is proud To Settle their restaurant in the Upper East Side and invites their Patrons To Sit and enjoy family-style hospitality and share Lashevet’s take on the authentic Middle Eastern cuisine“La” means “To” and “Shevet” means “Tribe” – The Lashevet Team dedicates this restaurant to The Tribe of Neighbors, Friends, and Guests from All Over

Our server was one of the best I’ve ever had, she was so kind and attentive. The food was great (particularly the pita), and service was fast. I went with my friend who lives in the area, and she’s been for brunch which she said was also excellent.
