No more smokey baba gounoush at Sahadi's!

Jim Leff | May 21, 200708:54 PM     19

I finally managed to get to Sahadi before their 7pm closing time....and guess what? In spite of what I keep posting, they haven't stocked the smokey prepackaged baba gounoush from Laila Restaurant in over four years.

The deal is this: Laila's chef/owner, Elias, closed the place four years ago, and stopped supplying the baba. The manager of Sahadi's is sad about this...says lots of customers ask about it, but so far he's been unsuccessful in persuading Elias to keep making the stuff. It doesn't sound like his hope is completely dead, though.

So I currently know nowhere to find really soulful, really smokey baba gounoush.

Woe = Me
