Food wasn’t the only thing on the owners’ minds when conceiving Aida. Transforming a scuzzy old Taco Bell into something a little more upscale and making this the neighborhood hangout is also a priority.
Whatever you order, rest assured that your food comes from the heart. All the dishes on the menu are traditional family recipes that owners’ family grew up eating themselves.
Named after the classic opera Aida by Giuseppe Verdi, which was first performed in Cairo in 1871, Aida serves Egyptian-Mediterranean cuisine the way Egyptian’s consume it – free of bells and whistles, bravado and belly dancing.
Simply, it’s Egyptian-Mediterranean fare that you can’t get enough of. Be warned, the Mediterranean Sampler will have your mouth watering for days after you dine.
Whether you’ve come for couple-time or camaraderie, whatever you do, don’t skip the baklava. It’s big enough to share, and hypnotizing enough to become a lifelong favorite in an instant.
