Al-Basha Menu, Prices and Locations

Basha remained on board for 11 years, rose to the rank of chef and became fully versed in Italian and American cuisines. During those years, his dream of owning a restaurant became clearer, and it was realized eleven years ago with Al-Basha Restaurant at 1076 Main St. in Paterson.

To open an Italian restaurant requires a sizable investment in terms of equipment,” he explained.So instead, I figured I’d offer the Middle Eastern cuisine I’d grown up with. And there was no question that the best location would be along Main Street in Paterson. Look around, this is community hub for shopping and restaurants. We have diners who come weekly from as far as Albany (N.Y.), Connecticut, New York and Maryland.
