Chef Einat Admony, named a “fiercely determined chef” by The New York Times, grew up in Tel Aviv, worked as a cook in the Israeli Army, walked away from college after two months, roamed around Germany as a gypsy, then packed up her life to move to New York City. Now, after 20+ years, Chef Einat is the chef and owner of Balaboosta, the fine-dining Middle Eastern restaurant; Kish-Kash, New York’s first couscous bar; and the beloved falafel chain, Taim. She is also the author of two cookbooks: Balaboosta, and Shuk, with Artisan Books. When she is not at one of her restaurants, she can be found at home in Brooklyn, cooking for her two children, Liam and Mika, her husband and business partner, Stefan Nafziger, plus, a constant flow of dinner parties with family and friends.


Taïm, (meaning “tasty” in Hebrew) opened in 2005 as a tiny storefront in the West Village, and was a place where Chef Einat Admony could share her love of falafel, sabich, s’rug and amba, cauliflower shawarma and smoothies with the world. Today, Taïm has grown to include more restaurants, including one in Lower Manhattan at 75 Maiden Lane. Chef Einat, with her husband and business partner Stefan Nafziger, have also opened three Israeli inspired, fine-dining restaurants including Balaboosta, Kish-Kash, and Bar Bolonat.
