About Nasser Jaber

“The olive tree to my family, or to any Palestinian family, is more precious than me, because it’s older than me,” Nas said. “It’s fed [my father], it’s fed his grandfather. This is how they view it when settlers come and they offer trees.” Extending an olive branch to visiting peoples is an apt metaphor for the ideas Nasser Jab began to mull over — he wanted to connect people from different cultures, especially those whose stories were misunderstood, and he knew he could do it through food. Eventually, he got his chance after he opened up his own restaurant on the Lower East Side and catalyzed a conversation around the Palestinian perspective with all people from a full-circle audience. His food is focused on the culture, the heritage, the roots of the ingredients and the dishes that come together in his kitchen to your plate.
