Sümac Chef Thrainn Freyr Vigfusson's Middle Eastern Restaurant

Restaurant Sümac is the casual Middle Eastern restaurant from chef Thrainn Freyr Vigfusson of ÓX. The open grill is the beating heart of the restaurant, with most of the dishes touching the fire before hitting your table. Menu highlights include the flatbread with za’atar and hummus; grilled oyster mushrooms; carrots with whipped feta, honey, and cumin; the grilled shrimp skewer with chili and preserved lemon; and the beef short rib with onion, fennel, and hazelnut dukkah. The creative cocktail program highlights Middle Eastern flavors like rose, arak, turmeric, and sumac.
