The STORY: FROM Chez Omar TO Bar Omar
In the 1970s, Omar Guerda was among the first to introduce North African flavors to Parisians. Chez Omar, in the Marais, quickly became a staple in the rich Paris restaurant landscape, where next-door neighbors and international artists alike enjoyed gathering. In 2016, a sister location opened in the bustling neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in New York.
Bar Omar in Brooklyn and Chez Omar in Paris serve family-style comfort food recipes passed down through the generations from the mountains of Algeria. Heaping portions of super-fine couscous, hearty seven-vegetable bouillon, flavorful tagines, and a variety of other meat and veggie options that will be sure to leave you satisfied.
