To our guests, customers and community –

It is with great sadness that we announce that Eat Zawadi has closed permanently.

Eat Zawadi was a beautiful coincidence born of the pandemic, the good kind of crazy, inspired collaboration and a desire to see how far we could take a dream. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to reach the speed necessary to escape the gravity of business realities.

We cannot imagine a more supportive community. Your purchases, pickups, and masked faces urging us forward have been a constant encouragement and gift. We remain grateful.

We are realists. In a difficult time, with a lot of hope, we did the best we could. Everyone worked hard. But seasons come and seasons go. Sometimes letting go is the best way to hold on.

Chef Safari is a culinary genius whose flavors and friendship made so much possible. When you see him around town, thank him for the Zawadi that we all had the chance to savor.

Thank you for your support.
Eat, live, be the gift.

~ The Eat Zawadi Team

WHY??? // Yeah, we understand. In the words of Jackson Browne –

All good things got to come to an end
The thrills have to fade
Before they come ’round again
The bills will be paid
And the pleasure will mend
All good things got to come to an end
