Zainab Hayajneh and her husband, Omar, are the bistro’s owners. Both are from Jordan, and bring the unique spices and preparations of their home country as well as the more recognizable Lebanese and Moroccan dishes to a menu that Zainab said is “kid-tested.”
“Any dish I’ve tried and liked, I come back home and try it for my kids,” she said. She and Omar have four children, two at Hall High School and two in college. “If it’s not yummy they won’t eat it,” she said.
