DEZ is a contemporary Middle Eastern fast-casual brand, which opened in Nolita in May 2018.  From Co-Founders Eden Grinshpan (Cooking Channel/Top Chef Canada) and Samantha Wasser (by CHLOE./The Sosta), DEZ features a menu of contemporary Middle Eastern dishes perfect for all day dining.

DEZ will offer a variety of vegetable mezes, ideal for sharing, chef-crafted salads, bowls, and pita sandwiches, plus a soft serve flavor of the month, and fresh-baked flatbreads and goodies in partnership with Breads Bakery.  We offer specially-curated house wines and beers on tap, a custom coffee program with Devocion, CAP Beauty Matcha, and are the first East Coast restaurant to serve West Coast-based Leaves and Flowers small-batch herbal teas.
