We had just finished a wine tasting and a friend says “let’s go get baklava next door”, so I said “ugh…..ok”. I didn’t know what I was in for, but it was so worth it!
Baboush is a quaint Lebanese restaurant, market, & bar located in West Village; it seems to be a neighborhood hot spot. The decor is eclectic and what I would call, funky Moroccan/Mediterranean chic. The centerpiece of the bar was a large glass container filled with strawberry & pineapple infused vodka (with actual pieces of colorful fruit).
We sat at the bar and ordered the baklava, which was very good. I’m used to my baklava having a flaky crust, but this one didn’t, it was kind of soft. Furthermore, it was sweet & lightweight in my mouth. I would definitely order it again.
The baklava was $7, the atmosphere was nice, and the customer service was exceptional so I will definitely be going back.
