ABOUT



Huda New Levantine Bistro is a neighborhood bistro serving seasonal interpretations of Levantine home cooking.

The name ‘Huda’ comes from Hadidi’s inspiration of creating a community space where people come together, like the community center he was a part of in Detroit, called... “Huda”.

SUMMER SUNDAYS

GEHAD HADIDIHuda was inspired by owner Gehad Hadidi’s childhood spent with his grandmother in Damascus.

This is his second restaurant In New York, following the revitilization of La Bonne Soupe In Midtown, a New York City Institution since 1973.

Prior to his restaurant career, Gehad spent his childhood between Detroit and Damascus until he moved to Beirut in his early 20’s. It was there that he found a place where his two worlds were combined and he immediately fell in love.

When the Syrian civil war erupted next door, he moved to New York where he started a new career as an urban planner working on affordable housing, homelessness and electric vehicle infrastructure in New York City. 

Following his passion for food and his longing for the cuisine of his upbringing, Gehad attended the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) in Manhattan. From there, he was introduced to the retiring owner of a charming French bistro and took the chance to become a restauranteur.

OMNEYAH HASSANChef Omneyah Hassan was born and raised in Queens from Egyptian parents that hail from Alexandria. She previously worked in the kitchens at Pasquale Jones and Legacy Records.

She draws inspiration from her family’s time spent around the dining table, sharing food and gossip.
