Israeli Star Chef Meir Adoni to Open ‘Modern Middle Eastern’ Spot in NYC

Chef Meir Adoni, a star in Israel, will open his first restaurant outside the country this fall with Breads Bakery honcho Gadi Peleg as a partner.

The yet-unnamed “modern Middle Eastern” eatery already has a home in Manhattan’s Flatiron district. In Israel, Adoni hosts The Chef Games, a TV cooking competition that pairs amateurs and pros. His acclaimed Israeli restaurants include Catit, Mizlala, Blue Sky and Lumina.
