WELCOME TO BATATA
batata is shenhav and deborah. we are inspired by israeli food - we crave it, we love it, we need it. coming from a long family lineage of tahini and falafel makers, it felt natural to open our own little cozy and comforting neighborhood restaurant.
we imagined batata as fun and inviting; the kind of place where our neighbors could come to munch on delicious falafel while playing a round of backgammon, otis redding playing in the background.
we call it batata, which means sweet potato in hebrew, because it captures what we have created- a place that is humble and nourishing but also a bit of a treat. we are so excited to see our vision become a reality, and to share our enthusiasm with you.
at batata, like in our own kitchen, we believe food should reflect care for the environment and appreciation for the good bounty the earth provides. our chicken is free of antibiotics and hormones and we source fresh and local ingredients. we welcome you to batata and hope you enjoy our food, made with love and care!
