Chef Einat Admony to Open New York Couscous Place

Her Mediterranean tapas place Combina may have closed in May after just six month, but superchef Einat Admony is bouncing back in a big way.

Kish-Kash, a couscous-centric restaurant, will open in Manhattan’s Financial District in late 2016. A kishkash, she tells Grubstreet, is the sieve that couscous goes through. Using one will be part of her elaborate process to serve “real couscous… it’s very labor-intensive,” she said.

Admony also plans to expand Taim, her fast-casual Middle-Eastern brand, around the world — from Chicago and L.A. to Japan and Australia.
