Ron Arazi: Co-Founder / Culinary Director
Growing up in Israel, in a Jewish Moroccan-Lebanese family,
I was introduced to a world of vibrant, flavorful food prepared from scratch, and from the heart. I learned the fundamentals in culinary school, and gained professional experience traveling through France and working in some of Israel and New York City's most established kitchens. But my culinary heritage and the value of tradition remain at the foundation of my work. Through New York Shuk, Leetal and I are grateful to have the opportunity to establish our own version of Mediterranean-Middle Eastern cuisine and, most importantly, to share it with you.
