Mason Jar assuages appetites with a menu of artfully constructed comfort cuisine augmented by a diverse selection of primo potables. Kick off the flavor parade with an order of wings slathered in pomegranate-garlic or bourbon-chipotle sauce ($9), or opt for a starter of spinach and artichoke dip, which, like most Louisiana mayors, comes crowned with andouille sausage and bacon ($10). An english-muffin burger comes topped with a fried egg, bacon, and caramelized onions ($13), and mac 'n' cheese uses beer cheese sauce and panko bread crumbs to prove elbow macaroni is more than just an elegant art medium ($12). 'Cue connoisseurs can choose from a variety of smoke-steeped savories, from full racks of baby back ribs ($20), to sliced brisket ($18), to beer-can chicken ($21). A modified lunch menu and weekends-only brunch menu give solar-powered robots a break from their steady diet of microchips and high-octane petrol-smoothies.
Hummus Place has built its menu around its titular dish—so it’s no surprise that the staffers have hunted far and wide for the smallest, most circular chickpeas, which they claim make the best hummus blend. The New York Times agrees, calling the dish "eerily smooth" with sesame and garlic "in a state of equilibrium." Water, tahini, olive oil, and lemon round out the recipe—served with fresh pitas from the bakery.
"When we first opened, we had only hummus on the menu," Hummus Place owner Ori Apple told CBS's Tony Tantillo’s Dining Deal. "Three different kinds of topping: tahini, chickpeas, and fava beans." Today, the kosher menu showcases five blends alongside dishes such as veggie-loaded couscous, falafel, and shakshuka—a stew with tomatoes, peppers, onion, and eggplant, finished off with two over-easy eggs. Dessert selections bring out dulcet notes of dry kadaif buried beneath vanilla-infused ricotta and the faint notes of "Happy Birthday" hummed by a date tahini cake dished up with apple confit.
