Miss Ada Brings Modern Mediterranean to Fort Greene
Chefs rarely have the pedigree of Tomer Blechman, born in Tel Aviv to Latvian parents and trained in some of New York’s most iconic – and successful – restaurants including Gramercy Tavern, Maialino, Lupa, Cookshop, Bar Bolonat and more. Tomer’s cooking is rooted in the Mediterranean and the flavors of Israel and the Middle East. The restaurant’s name nods to his roots, a play on the Hebrew word for restaurant, which phonetically is misada.
The cozy room features a long bar, banquette seating and an open kitchen where guests can see Tomer and his team at work. Out back, a 750 square foot yard provides a respite from the city’s bustle and beds growing herbs, tomatoes and more.
