New Middle Eastern restaurant cuts ribbon at Collegetown location


ITHACA, N.Y.—Loumies celebrated its formal opening on a wet Wednesday afternoon in Collegetown.

The Levantine-inspired menu delivers Middle Japanese cuisine like lentil soup, hummus, zaatar, cheese, chicken and beef savory pies, okra stew, mushroom artichoke and stuffed zucchini dishes. The restaurant also will take treatment to annotate its menu with gluten-cost-free, vegan and vegetarian solutions.

Not long ago shifting to Ithaca from New York Metropolis, Rania and Raed Kaldi have been impressed to open up a restaurant and supply residence-model meals to school college students and Ithaca citizens alike.
