NoLita is coming quite the culinary destination in NYC. Some new wonderful restaurants are popping up along Mulberry, Mott, and Elizabeth, including the really good Mediterranean tapas spot Balaboosta. I stopped in last week for a quick bite and was very satisfied.
Order a glass of wine and munch on their great homemade pita chips.
Dave’s Grilled Pizza ($11), with carrot purée, caramelized onions, goat cheese & cilantro, is a fine appetizer to start with.
Smoked Eggplant Bruschetta ($8) with herb & citrus salad, and silan honey had a nice a flavorful smokiness to it.
Crispy Cauliflower ($7) with currants & pine nuts is absolutely wonderful, and some of the best cauliflower I had ever consumed. I loved this dish!
So get your tapas on at Balaboosta, and taste some of the culinary treasures that lie north of Little Italy.
