Our Story

Sami & Susu is an all-day Mediterranean restaurant and specialty store for pantry items.

Inspired by family recipes and the many flavors of the Mediterranean, Amir Nathan and Jordan Anderson launched Sami & Susu as a roving pop up in Summer 2020. After a year of delivering food all over the city, Sami & Susu now puts down roots in the Lower East Side, where Amir and Jordan share family history.

For every occasion, Sami & Susu is here for you – from first thing in the morning for an early cup of coffee and Rolled Boureka (based on Amir’s grandmother’s recipe) until late in the evening. Our pantry is also open to you. We work directly with purveyors, winemakers and artisans throughout the U.S. and the Mediterranean to source everything from olive oil and vinegars to spice blends and preserves, so it’s easy for you to stop by and stock up. 

Come see us at 190 Orchard, between Stanton Street and Houston Street.
