A Jordanian Cooks Moussaka at The Greek Spot in Yonkers

March 17, 2017

YONKERS, NY – Abdel Khatib may not have envisioned owning a Greek restaurant in Yonkers when he arrived in the United States from Jordan, but he seized opportunities as they came his way, The Journal News reports.

“I learned from the Greeks when I came in 1978,” said Khatib, owner of The Greek Spot at 634 McLean Ave. “When I went to Florida I opened with Greek partners, that’s why I know all the Greek food.”

Khatib, 60, of Woodland Park, New Jersey, bought The Greek Spot in July. He said it’s not unheard of for a Jordanian to cook moussaka, gyros or souvlaki.

“It’s Mediterranean food,” Khatib said.

Location: 634 McLean Ave., Yonkers.
