Mozzarella is a highly apropos name for a restaurant that serves up cheesy goodness in almost every bite. The owner, Yossi, is an Israeli native who crafted the restaurant’s menu to highlight Mediterranean, Italian, and Middle-Eastern brunch cuisines. For the full waiter service restaurant with an ample party room that can seat up to sixty, manager Yitzy Chriqui maintains a casual yet classy ambience that makes Mozzarella a great place to bring a date, a business partner, or just anyone looking to enjoy an excellent meal.
Mozzarella’s Signature Egg Roll, Rolex Replica Watchesa decadently deep-fried bite of feta,cream cheese, mushroom, roasted eggplant, parsley, cranberries, and pesto, already has its legion of dedicated fans. Another fan-favorite dish is the Four Cheese Pizza, a personal pie topped with marinara sauce, parmesan, ricotta, feta, and of course, mozzarella cheese. Fitting in with the Italian theme is the restaurant’s lauded Spaghetti di Palermo, a spaghetti dish featuring the house pomodoro sauce, black olives, red onions, and tomatoes, as well as the Stuffed Artichoke appetizer of artichoke hearts stuffed with ricotta, spinach, fried onions, and, once again, mozzarella.

For those looking to lighten up, the café has some diet friendly options as well. Health-conscious diners love the Avocado Salad loaded with romaine hearts, spinach, avocado, sun-dried tomato, roasted peppers, cucumber, feta, and a choice of house dressings. Although forgoing the dairy at a café aptly named Mozzarella may seem foolish to some, for those wanting to forgo the cheese entirely, the Moroccan Sea Bass packs a protein-filled punch with its beet infused tomato stew, served with grilled jalapeno, toasted bread, side salad, and tahini. Another cheese-free lunchtime classic is the Fish Arais, a pita pocket stuffed with house-marinated ground whitefish, served with a side of tahini and a garden salad.
Mozzarella offers a wide selection of drinks from sharp Italian espressos to refreshing Strawberry Mojitos and Limonanas to the Israeli classic milky Mekupelet chocolate drink. Mozzarella delivers throughout the Crown Heights neighborhood and is now on Uber Eats, so a delicious and decadently cheesy meal is only ever a few minutes away.
El Pasaje- Dairy
Varda- 10/30/14 For Hochmaniacs Review- El Pasaje Resto/Bar- Dairy in Buenos Aires
On our annual visit to my husband's entire family in Argentina, we ALL spent an enjoyable meal in the outdoor eating area of El Pasaje -Dairy. When I say ALL, it is because for once I could actually enjoy the meal and not have to divert my 4 year old from making a water glass bowling alley.
There is a small but action packed ball pit, play area a la Kids in Action in Brooklyn, where you child can be watched through the glass window as you enjoy the delicious food. When in Argentina, I always save some calorie points for a fugazzetta, which is a thicker, crisper pizza crust than what is found in American pizza. Layered with carmelized onion, mozzarella, and on ours, tomato, often accompanied by faina - an additional crust made of chickpea flour ( you have to try them together to understand the flavor and crunch). We had an inch left in our waistbands so we also enjoy the empanadaswith queso y tomate (cheese ans tomato) and the bollos/bohios de spinaca (spinach) a light spinach and cheese filled concotion similar to a small calzone, but with more filling than dough. The service was lovely, the food delicious and the ball pit FANTASTIC!!!! Save us a seat, we're coming back in November!!!!!!
Review for Olga's on Smith
Elke Reva Sudin- 11/24/09 Nestled in Carroll Gardens Brooklyn, Olga's on Smith is a modern cafe restaurant befitting Smith Street's established trendy eateries. From the outside there is no indication that Olga's is catered toward a kosher crowd and the food is a great alternative for those looking outside the standard pizza and kugel restaurants. The walls are white and free of clutter. Large windows let in the natural light from outside. It is a great place to take a date or just relax during the day and the space can hold up to 100 guests for a simcha or special occasion.
The menu offers a healthy yet delectable lunch and light dinner. In the mood for a pan fried tilapia with wasabi aioli on artisan bread? Or how about a roasted red pepper and pesto panini with mozzarella? They're all served with an exotic side salad and chips and go great with a savory soup. Finish off with a home baked cookie and cafe drink. There are as many options for fish and dairy eating customers as there are for vegan ones. On the menu you will find an easy guide for which selections are veggie, vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
Olga's on Smith offer a variety of catering options for your function with their carefully put-together platters. The restaurant is also very technologically savvy, with a Facebook page and group showing off the latest specials and menu additions. Ultimately, the restaurant is a great addition to Brownstone Brooklyn's eclectic bistros and is especially welcome due to the lack of kosher eateries in the neighborhood. They offer delivery throughout the area, call to see if you are within their region.
Close to the Carrol Street stop on the F and G trains in Brooklyn.
Judith- 10/28/07 Expresti is a cozy little restaurant on Queen Mary Road, and at the heart of Montrealâ€™s unofficial kosher restaurant district.
I have had the pleasure of enjoying many lunches and dinners at Expresti since its opening in 2005, and the simple and yet delicious fare is what keeps me and my friends (and all of Jewish Montreal it seems on many Saturday nights!) coming back.
Exprestiâ€™s lunch menu includes what are honestly the best paninis and wraps in the city. One favourite of mine is the California Wrap which is a sizeable pesto-flavoured wrap filled with avocado, mock crab, Boston lettuce and a special house dressing and served with a small pasta salad on the side. You should also try an Italian Panini, which is a sandwich made up of mozzarella, Edam cheese and grilled vegetables on a pressed baguette.
For dinner, Expresti is the perfect place for couples looking for a satisfying and milchig meal. My perfect Expresti meals always starts with the best French onion soup this side of the Atlantic, served in a gorgeous French onion soup terrine and topped with a toasted baguette slice and mozzarella cheese. There is also a â€˜soup de jourâ€™ alternative for calorie-counters which normally include varieties of pureed vegetable soups.
As a main course, enjoy one of Exprestiâ€™s many delicious salads (especially the Salmon teriyaki salad), pizzas, pastas (no favourites here as all the pastas are equally amazing), crepes or fish dishes. Expresti also has an excellent sushi menu which includes regular sushi fare but also has some out-of-the-ordinary rolls as well, filled with exotic fruit which are pretty sumptuous and yet affordable treats.
No matter how full you feel after an Expresti dinner, there is always room for an Expresti dessert. Many of my friends will actually stop by specifically for the melt-in-your-mouth cheesecakes, which are available in Chocolate, Strawberry and Mocha. An equally big hit are the dessert chocolate crepes.
As I mentioned before, Expresti does tend to get filled up pretty quickly on a busy evening, and so your best bet is to call and make reservations even ten minutes in advance. I often call in lunches for takeout to make the most out of my one hour work lunch, and I assure you that my orders stay just as tasty and warm as when I eat in.
Whatever time of day you decide to drop by this cute and chic bistro, you can be assured of a time worth your while!
