For a tiny space, Nish Nush packs visual punch, with gridded windows, high wooden ceilings, industrial lights and stools, and tables with chickpeas encased in plastic. Despite the 24 seats—at a 12-seat communal table, two four-tops, and a small counter)—the restaurant seems likely to be more popular for takeout. The menu has three main categories: pita sandwiches, platters, and salads; there are also many side dishes and a soup of the day, and you can “blend your own hummus” with mix-ins such as artichokes and corn. Peek at the options laid out behind the sneeze guard while you wait, but when it’s your turn, be ready.
