The Ultimate Palestinian Feast Is Served at This Brooklyn Restaurant | Hungry For More | Hungry For More

Owners Abdul Elenani and Ayat Masoud opened their restaurant Ayat serving up hearty Palestinian dishes that are large enough to feed a family. Ayat, who grew up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, always dreamed of introducing her community to the traditional Palestinian dishes she ate within her home. While Middle Eastern street food flavors - such as shawarma, kebabs, falafel, and hummus - are popular in their neighborhood, some of the more traditional Palestinian recipes she loves are less well known.

Hungry For More
In our brand new First We Feast documentary series, Hungry for More, we will chronicle the redemptive stories of chefs, home cooks, and entrepreneurs who represent the new vanguard of the food world—hustlers who have carved out their own special lanes and rebelled against the status quo - all while bringing comfort to their communities and beyond. From the Birria MVP of Brooklyn, to the Bronx native trying to take chopped cheese nationwide, and the home cooks turned restaurateurs bringing plant based cuisine to their block in Flatbush - these stories are testaments to how comfort and success sometimes come from the unlikeliest of places.
