Two of our rockstar marketing team members sat down with Alex Darus of to talk about our 30-year anniversary as well as the legacy our restaurant has created in the region. Read on to learn what they said!


Aladdin’s Eatery is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Owners Fady and Sally Chamoun opened the first Aladdin’s in Lakewood on April 15, 1994, and have built the chain into a regional favorite, with more than 30 restaurants in multiple states.

Aladdin’s is a key player on the Cleveland restaurant scene, and not just because of its popularity. It’s also important for the role it played in teaching Cleveland about traditional Lebanese and Mediterranean food.

Thank you for the love — we are so grateful to call Cleveland home!
