Eli Sussman at Samesa

Bio

Based on their love of hole-in-the-wall falafel joints, halal trucks and Middle Eastern restaurants from Detroit to New York, Max and Eli Sussman created a from-scratch menu that serves their versions of these dishes. Samesa's specialties include healthy dips like roasted beet dip, lentil-pistachio spread, zucchini fritters and chicken shawarma made with organic chicken thighs marinated in buttermilk, labneh and a blend of spices for 48 hours and then slowly spit-roasted. Homemade multi-grain pitas are baked fresh daily.
