According to an article in the New York Times, the owners of Honey Mediterranean Gourmet & Market on Teaneck Road got into the food business when demand for products at their Persian rug store dried up because of the recession.
Owned by Ali and Fatima Khayatian, the store stocks such items as cardamom tea, pomegranate paste and spices and serves menu items that include traditional Persian dishes, with kebabs being the most popular.
ANCIENT MURALS INSPIRE LOCAL ARTISTS
Deborah Ugoretz, Miriam Stern and Debbie Schore of Teaneck will have their artwork featured in the Dura Europos Project at the Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art from Dec. 5 to March 27.
The women's artwork reflect murals found in the 3rd century synagogue of Dura Europas in Syria. These ancient murals, which were created by artists within a diverse religious environment, are displayed in the National Museum in Damascus, Syria.
The Jewish Art Salon of New York City is organizing the exhibit, with the opening planned from 4 to 6 p.m. Dec. 5.
