The owners of Falafel Mafia, Dylan and Cameron Gardner, have leased 1 Monument Way, the space formerly occupied by Foley’s/Scattaloni Bakery where they plan to open Nura (instagram).
Nura will be a 30-seat hummusiya open for breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch serving fresh made breads to order with their hummus and a range of Middle Eastern dishes. The menu will also include a selection of falafel pockets that carry over from the Falafel Mafia menu.
The Gardeners launched Falafel Mafia in 2017. They’re aiming to have Nura open by the end of November.
A hummusiya is casual restaurant with a hummus-centered menu. The most notable example in the US is Dizengoff in Philadelphia which was open by Zahav founder/chef Michael Solomonov.
