Over the last decade or so, Shani has been one of Israel’s food pioneers, serving Mediterranean taste freshly and conveniently in a pita with seasonal vegetables, fish,and meat. The name of the game at Miznon is recognizable innovation. The pita is the beating heart of Israeli comfort food. It’s the perfect model for translating the language of Mediterranean food around the world and combining that food with other foods. Miznon is now in several locations around the globe with its most recent additions popping up in the trendy New York neighborhood of Chelsea.
