Between Barney's & Urban Outfitters
The Middle Eastern presence on Atlantic may have declined somewhat over the years, but it's still one of the true pleasures of the avenue. Sahadi's is booming - expanding even - despite the Trader Joes across the street, and Damascus still offers the best savoury pastries, breads and mezze around. Hang around in Malko Karkanni Bros Inc., chat to the owner, watch the store cat mooch around her kingdom, buy some honey, candy, oils and syrups, a spouted cooking pot, pistachios. A pocket of the city to relish.
