Another kiosk will be opening in the Flatiron, this time an offshoot of the Mediterranean restaurant ilili (236 5th Avenue). The ilili kiosk, currently known as the ilili Box, will be located in the public plaza between 5th Avenue and Broadway, and between 23rd Street and 24th Street. The area has outdoor seating with umbrellas and is just west of Madison Square Park.
If the current signage is any indication, they will feature shawarma, manoushe, hommus, falafel, green lemonade, and their famous brussels sprouts. We would suspect the Phoenician Fries (sumac, parsley, garlic whip) may make an appearance too. We are also hoping the pressed chicken sandwich, and maybe the shrimp salad make the menu as well.
This is the second kiosk in the area – the Flatiron Green Cafe kiosk opened in early spring.
