As I walked up to the venue, I could tell that it was a foodie hot spot. There were food trucks lined up outside and people in every restaurant! It was evident that a lot of customers were there during their lunch break, as it was a weekday.
Harissa Grill found it’s home at The Factory, along side places such as Vanessa’s Dumplings, Papillion Cafe + Bakery, Coffeed NYC, and Pizza Factory.
Harissa is a upscale Mediterranean fusion restaurant offering plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, in the form of flavorful dishes from the Middle East. Meat lovers shouldn’t fear, as there are many carnivore options as well! Owner, Chef Daniel, who was raised in Israel, and uses fresh and natural ingredients to produce these savory dishes.
The menu hanging on the wall, breaks down all of your meal making wants and needs. There are a total of 5 steps when building, and the menu displays each option very well.

For my dish, I choose the Greek Lamb Gyro as my main, on a pita, threw in a few sides and toppings and sauced it with some Tahini.
I also got a Falafel and Hummus Plate! The presentation of the food was amazing; I loved that it was served on newspaper print!
Our first visit to Harissa Grill was a success! The food and atmosphere surpassed my expectations.
After eating, I sat down with Chef Daniel to talk more about the restaurant. He touched upon how he incorporates the best meals from various countries into his Mediterranean fusion dishes. He was proud of the great quality proteins, toppings, and snacks items that he offered. I also learned that Harissa Grill is a new venture from the very popular food truck, Meatoss, which sat outside of The Factory. Since costumers already know its merit, they flocked to the restaurant for it’s opening. Transitioning from a food truck to a restaurant is a lot easier when you already have regular costumers!
