Zou Zou’s is a lively and modern Eastern Mediterranean restaurant from chef Madeline Sperling, who spent years working at some of the most notable restaurants throughout New York City, including Gramercy Tavern and The NoMad. Sperling will be joined by Juliana Latif, who will work under her in the kitchen [the duo met and cooked alongside each other at The NoMad]. Together they’ll offer a menu inspired by and celebrating the cuisine and flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean region, bringing in influences from Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, among others.  

Designed by AvroKO, the 75-seat space will feature an open kitchen centered around a wood-fired hearth, and is inspired by the Levant in tones and materiality, featuring dark woods, off-white plasters, vibrant blue and green tiles, highlighting open spaces punctuated by arches and domes.
