ABOUT Famous Pita

It was 20 years ago when Baruch and Naomi Tanami opened up Famous Pita and their reputation is legendary. You can find people at the restaurant talking and remembering 10-15 years ago when they first went to “Famous”. These loyalists never stopped and they haven’t stopped since. Twenty years ago most people in the United States weren’t even aware of schwarma, the Middle Eastern delicacy. They might have seen it and some might have had it in Israel but until Baruch introduced it to New York customers, it was something foreign. Nowadays, schwarma can be found in most meat restaurants and Baruch admits that imitation is the best flattery. But all his customers remind him of who does it the best. Famous Pita has come a long way since its inception. They recently moved to a larger and stylish space and specialize in all different kinds of Middle Easterns and American dishes. They, of course, have their “famous” salad bar with 14 kinds of fresh salad that accompanies every entree.

The restaurant has also added new items on their menu, including schnitzel, which they seve in a fresh baguette. Everything is made on premises from scratch. In fact, very often, you’ll find Baruch in the back, preparing the pita himself and placing it in their special oven. It is actually very interesting to watch. Famous Pita during the day is this bright, sunny restaurant with people coming in and out during their lunch breaks or driving by for a quick sandwich. At night, the restaurant has this magical glow that is calm and relaxing where you can usually find families and friends enjoying their meals. The restaurant is always clean and neat and there is never a hassle in getting your food. Service is quick and efficient. Bottom line: At Famous Pita you will get the most for your money.
