Co-owner Sari Sakakini told the New York Times, “We wanted to make five-star gourmet Palestinian food.” The restaurant's Italian-trained chefs, Iad Abu Khlaf and Samer Jadoun, are particularly proud of their fusion risottos. Their risotto al maklouba, is made with cauliflower, eggplant and spices.[2]
