Middle Eastern Influences on Atlantic Avenue- Boutros

We had the pleasure of speaking with Allen Dabagh, Owner and Chef of Boutros, 185 Atlantic Avenue. The New American restaurant features cuisine influenced by Chef Dabagh’s Middle Eastern heritage.

He reminisces about growing up and visiting Atlantic Avenue to buy spices. He would often come to the avenue with family and visit historical businesses such as Sahadi’s, Oriental Pastry & Grocery, and Damascus Bread and Bakery Shop.

All the pieces of his life puzzle came together and he couldn’t imagine Boutros being anywhere else. Chef Dabagh wants to continue the Middle Eastern traditions and bring in new modern twists for generations to come and enjoy.
