Gila’s Nosh is a nice little place located in Kips Bay. Even though it’s home to plenty of hard surfaces, including the floor to ceiling glass front window and entrance, It’s too small to get uncomfortably loud (the drop ceiling tiles probably help). There was unnecessary music playing during our visit, as usual, but it wasn’t not too loud. We were surprised to find a place this calm on 23rd Street, which is, after all, a busy cross town road.
Gila’s Nosh is perfectly fine for a nosh or a coffee. The food is Middle Eastern/Mediterrenean, with very good, friendly service. It’s a nice alternative to the chains that proliferate around this area. We recommend a visit.
Note: There is scaffolding next to Gila’s Nosh which may make it appear to be closed, but the restaurant is open.
