sample syrian fare at syriana Cafe & gallery


An eerie quiet hangs over Ellicott City’s Main Street, still struggling to recover fromlast summer’s devastating flood—its second in two years. Businesses that once filled its centuries-old buildings have been slow to return; some still have plywood on the windows. But Syriana Cafe remains, a testament to the perseverance of its founders, Khaldoun “K” and Rasha Alghatrif, who left their home country of Syria more than a dozen years ago.


From the second floor of the cafe in historic Ellicott City, you might think you were in Damascus. Mother of pearl inlays adorn the walls, and beaded tapestries of old Syria hang with wooden picture frames and brass coffee pots. The otherworldly feeling is completed with food: on the menu are Arabic specialties like fattoush, a salad with crispy pita, and manakeesh seasoned with zaatar.


8180 Main St., Ellicott City. 443-325-5661.syrianacafe.com
