Middle Eastern Desserts in Manhattan?

Looking for a selection of Middle Eastern desserts to go. Was thinking Damask Falafel on Avenue A, but they've closed. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

  1. I like Gulluoglu in Midtown East.

    982 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10022

      I second Gulluoglu - they have an interesting, unique selection of desserts including chestnut flavor of baklava and various other pastries.

      982 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10022

    2. Güllüoğlu on 2nd avenue - the sour cherry baklava is supreme followed by the cream baklava. Went to Güllüoğlu in Karakoy in Istanbul in 2001 brought some to Athens with rave reviews.

      1. I like Andres cafe and bakery in the UES, it might not be middle eastern enough though. If you're willingly to travel Astoria Queens also has some great spots.
