Distinctive flavors, original recipes, and a true understanding of Israeli food make Bar Virage one of the most appealing restaurants in New York. The concept is simple, with a menu that draws on heritage-driven European dishes. Combined with delicious Middle Eastern flavors, the Mediterranean-American fare at Bar Virage is deeply flavorful and full of character, yet never heavy or greasy.

The secret is the ingredients. Israeli food relies heavily on vegetables, fruits, and spices, and many of them are combined to create entirely new, unique meals. At Bar Virage, creativity is king. Diners will find so much more than standard Israeli fare—although those old-school favorites are all on the menu, too.

The small plates menu at Bar Virage is packed with traditional, crowd-pleasing favorites like falafel, hummus, baba ghanoush, tzatziki, and chicken kebabs. Enticing offerings, such as smoked octopus, matbucha (a blend of spicy tomatoes and peppers), and Moroccan beef cigars, are also excellent starters.

The main menu is composed of filling dishes whose recipes center on fresh, wholesome ingredients. Brought to life by bright, zesty seasonings, they exemplify the heart of authentic Israeli food. Some Bar Virage favorites include chicken shawarma, short rib risotto, schnitzel, and seared salmon.

Guests seeking an especially light and flavor-packed meal will find a variety of salads, including a classic Mediterranean, a hearty tuna, and the colorful Freekeh bowl, which includes kale, multicolored carrots, red onions, avocado, and lemon vinaigrette. For diners who prefer Mediterranean-American food with a twist, an extensive menu of pita sandwiches is available, and each comes with a choice of French fries or a salad.

Bar Virage also has a comprehensive happy hour menu that includes a variety of original craft cocktails, draft beers, and Israeli foods. Brunch is an equally festive affair, with offerings like classic eggs Benedict, omelets, and avocado toast.

What better way to satisfy a craving for Middle Eastern food? Bar Virage has it all—and then some. For more information, view the restaurant’s food and drink menus online, or give them a call at (212) 253-0425.
