Best New Restaurants 2015: #18, Fat Pasha
Somehow, against all odds, chopped liver is the hippest thing around, in no small measure because of Anthony Rose, the chef behind Dupont’s Big Crow and Rose and Sons. A few blocks west, he opened Fat Pasha, his version of an Israeli restaurant where the freshness of the hummus is as serious a matter as the bite of the pickles. The portions, as at Rose’s other establishments, are humongous, the kind of cooking to put meat on your bones. His smoked fish is now on the menu at Schmaltz Appetizing, a takeout he opened around the corner on Howland.
