Our Story

In 2004 on a quiet Manhattan street corner in Hell’s Kitchen, our founders built a wood burning oven that sparked a revolution...Taboon Restaurant is the home of The Original Wood-fired Middleterranean® Kitchen. It is there that Chef Efi Naon pioneered his signature cuisine marrying flavors from the Middle-East and Mediterranean. There in Hell’s Kitchen, seared in the smoke and fire of the Taboon, our passion for feeding people and our desire to producing an authentic and superior product from natural clean ingredients gave birth to Taboonette… the “little Taboon”.

Our CULTURE

At Taboonette our job is to create a culture of integrity, respect and enthusiasm for excellence that first values and nurtures the growth of our employees so that they, as a team, can successfully deliver on our promise to our customers, be fair to our vendors, and ultimately contribute to the communities we serve by leading a profitable and fun business. We aim to exceed expectations through bold fresh food and a clean and energized environment with a team of thoughtful and welcoming people who are enthusiastic about the products we serve and delivering an extraordinary guest experience. Taboonette provides people who care about what they eat with fast and fresh “made from scratch” food that sacrifices nothing in flavor and quality for the speed of the fast casual market. Our chef driven Middleterranean® menu draws on the healthy diets of the Middle East and Mediterranean, and our culture supports the communal nature of food and partnerships with local farmers producing natural sustainable products. The result is food with integrity that is clean and natural with articulated flavors that are not over processed and can satisfy a variety of dietary practices.
