Bibi’z Restaurant | Lounge
An Experience Like Nowhere Else Located Outside of Manhattan, NYC
BIBI ’bee – ’bee (n) family nickname for sweetheart. The foundation of Bibi’z is dedicated to the love of eating and the art of simple, yet exceptionally delicious cuisine. We promise to welcome you, remember you and indulge you great service and food that will leave you with a sense of well-being, every time.
MEZMIZ ’mez – ’miz (v) root word meze, Eastern Mediterranean word, 1926. To feast on Mediterranean gastronomy, an extremely delicious mixture of mouth-watering dishes, simply prepared, dictated by the seasons and creating a food experience that is perfect for entertaining.
Robust flavors, grilled, baked or stewed with copious amounts of garlic, olive oil, and brightened by lemon juice and fresh herbs; this rustic and healthy cuisine is abundant in fresh fish, vegetables, olive oil, herbs and cheeses. Poultry is eaten more often than red meat, and when red meat (consumed sparingly) is eaten it is usually lamb on the coast and goat meat in the mountain regions.
Your meal may be as simple as you like or it may become an entire meal consisting of grilled marinated seafood, skewered meats, a variety of salads and an arrangement of desserts while being accompanied by drinks and most importantly, eaten with flat pita bread. This part of the meal is essential and can be used to replace the usage of the fork.
BLUE ZONE ’blü – ’zon (n) a region of the world where people commonly live active lives past the age of 100 years. Scientists and demographers have classified these longevity hot-spots by their inhabitants’ ability to live longer, on average, than anyone else in the world. Wisdom to live by from ‘blue zoners’…
shake it! – constant, moderate physical activity must be an inseparable part of your life.
work it! – maintain a positive outlook on life and reduce stress by focusing on your purpose in life while taking time to just “relax”.
Eat it! – 411 – eat and drink in moderation; plants, legumes, red wine are your best bet. Keep fish and poultry to a minimum and eat meat only rarely. No processed foods and whatever you do, don’t smoke!
Think it! – family first ahead of all other concerns. Reconnect with your spirituality and surround yourself with people of all ages who have similar optimistic “blue zone” values…who are socially and physically active.
SOCIAL HOUSE ’so – ’shuhl – ’haus (n) living or disposed to live in companionship with others or in a community, rather than in isolation: people are social beings. Devoted to, or characterized by friendly companionship: a social club. Seeking or enjoying the companionship of others; friendly; sociable; gregarious connected with, or suited to polite or fashionable society.
SLOW FOOD ’slo – ’fuud (n) an ironic way of saying no to fast food. Slow Food inspires living an unhurried life; beginning at the table. We believe everyone has a fundamental right to the pleasure of good, clean and fair food.
“Slow food unites the pleasure of food with responsibility, sustainability and harmony of nature.” – Carlo Petrini, Cuneo, Italy, Slow Food Founder and President
We took great care in sourcing the finest, freshest ingredients to craft your meals on the table. Our cuisine is inspired by a global pallet of tribal favorite dishes, traditional methods, and time-tested techniques using artisan cheeses, olives & oils, heirloom legumes, grass-fed meats, sustainable seafood products, and organic dairy.
SLOW WINE ’slo – ’waeen (n) sustainable winemaking is catching on, and the proof is in our list, hand-selected to include as many organic, biodynamic, easy-drinking, happily affordable wines that invite you to enjoy some time with friends and family.
We have committed ourselves to carrying the slow food and wine philosophy into our daily lives with lots of love! We encourage you to do the same and extend this invitation to savor rather than taste.
Incidentally, we quadruple filter our own still and sparkling water.
We offer 50+ wines by the glass, but if you decide to have a bottle and don’t finish it, we’ll wrap it in a nice package to enjoy at home.
A great way to sample… You select the three wines that you want to compare and explore, average the three prices, and we’ll pour two ounce tastes of each. Cheers!
