Rosé Restaurant Week at ilili

ilili summer restaurant week menu

With Summer Restaurant Week fast approaching, many NoMad neighborhood staples are gearing up to show off their delicious menus. Ilili sent us a preview of their restaurant week menu that has our mouthes watering!

Before we show you their menu, there is something very special to note. All guests who go to ilili for dinner during restaurant week will receive a complimentary tasting pour of rosé hailing from New York to Lebanon. Their restaurant week special will run from July 22nd through August 16th and each week’s menu will be paired with a different vineyard.

If you haven’t been to ilili yet, we highly recommend Chef Philippe Massoud‘s delicious middle eastern fare. At $25 for lunch and $38 for dinner, this menu is a steal! Check out ilili’s full summer restaurant week menu below:
