Miriam is most popular at brunch, which they do every day, but it’s not one of those spots filled with people who are more interested in seeing how many mimosas they can drink in 90 minutes than what they’re actually eating. This Israeli spot makes some truly excellent brunch dishes (get the burekas), and the environment is homey but still lively. The two-tops and bar seating work well for dates, but the food here is shareable and the tables can be pushed together, so keep it in mind for group hangs as well. Just expect a wait for brunch on weekends.
