Have you tried Timna yet?

Timna is now in soft-open mode at 109 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

The space previously housed Hummus Place. However, as Eater first noted, Hummus Place owner Ori Apple decided to upgrade the space and offer more menu choices.

Per Eater:

There are plans for Yemenite kubaneh bread, tacos made with Jerusalem's signature mixed grill of sweetbreads, preserved lemon, and tahini, and sea bass sashimi with tabouli and tzatziki.

To date we've heard several positive comments about the space and food. (Yelp is quiet though — just one review.)

Hummus Place closed for renovations in early February, never to reopen again (at least as Hummus Place).

FYI, Timna is a place in the south of Israel.

The building has a class 1 violation on DOB-and they did the construction with posted permits. Don't expect DOB to show up any time soon.

@5:22 don't like Jewish inspired food much do you?

Unless they made major changes to the space, a permit does not need to be pulled. Cosmetic changes are allowed ex. new paint etc.

Being that the previous tenant had a nice store I am not surprised the new tenants didn't change much.
