Sahadi’s Recognized as a “Historic Business”

As reported by Kirstyn Brendlen in The Brooklyn Paper, Brooklyn Heights’ mecca for Middle Eastern and other delicacies, Sahadi’s, 187-189 Atlantic Avenue, has been included in New York State’s Historic Business Preservation Registry. What effect this might have on Sahadi’s future isn’t clear, but as of now all seems to be going well. The Brooklyn Paper story quotes Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon, who nominated Sahadi’s for this honor: “For decades, they have brought the best flavors from across the world to Brooklyn. Legendary among foodies in the know + locals, Brooklyn is blessed and honored!”

    Remember Sahadi’s from the 1950s and 1960s when my mother took me along on shopping errands. It was a sliver of a store, and then it kept growing. Great place. And run by generations of a really nice family.

    I went into Sahadi’s for the first time since January 2020 yesterday (I know, it’s been a while). Appreciated the changes in store layout. It’s much easier to pick up a container of hummus now – no waiting for your number to be called but simply grab one from the cooler. The packaged coffee and nuts were easier to access too. Would be nice if the cashiers would wear masks but that’s not a problem exclusive to Sahadi’s. In all, good to see them surviving.
