From architect-restaurateur Cyril Aouizerate, the Frenchman associated with the Philippe Starck-designed Mama Shelter in Paris, Brooklyn-based MOB takes its name from Maimonides, the medieval philosopher-astronomer, whose history is explained in a graphic novel also published by the eaterie. Diners share vegetarian and vegan cuisine by chef Neal Harden, and eat at long communal tables lit by votives. All makes for a very interesting dining experience.
