Nish Nush x Recreation



Nish Nush is the kind of vegetarian stronghold that draws people of all tastes to its bold takes on traditional Mediterranean family recipes, no matter what the dietary preference. Quaint and small, you and your person can order a platter of falafel and hummus to split and savor in peace and quiet, but rest assured, it’s not that simple– with green falafel, spicy roasted red pepper falafel, and spinach and mushroom falafel, you’re in for something special. Accentuate your meal with a few small dishes, like Moroccan carrots or cauliflower topped with tahini, and you won’t be able to stop feeding each other little bites of absolutely everything. 

Keep with the easygoing vibes and gear up to enjoy the fun and games at Recreation, a coffee and coworking space by day, funky and spacious 80s themed bar at night. With a simple drink philosophy that turns basics like screwdrivers or gin and tonics into their best selves, without too much frill, the spacious and spunky room provides a place for its patrons to be carefree. Play Jenga or try your hand at a Pacman arcade game together–this is meant to be an (adult) happy place, with pure-in-spirit games and good drinks.
