Pistachio baklava at Damascus. Still by Alex Lisowski.
Damascus and Sahadi’s have been mainstays for about seven years. I love the Sahadi’s hummus, fried cauliflower, spanakopita and even the tiramisu. The Damascus pitas and baklava are likewise wonderful. Many thanks to the Matli brothers and to Charlie and Ron Sahadi for working with shooter/ editor/ director Alex Lisowski and I on this piece about Atlantic Avenue and Governor’s Island.
