Bustan Taking Over Former Hey Mambo Space
Bustan, a new Mediterranean restaurant, is set for a mid-January debut in the former dining room that housed New American restaurant Hey Mambo, which served its last diners in October. The team behind the transformation includes owner and executive chef Efi Nahon, who previously headed up the kitchen at Taboon. Fellow co-owner and operational manager Guy Goldstein is also an industry veteran, having most recently served as the Wine Director and General Manager of Junoon. Though a menu has not been finalized just yet, the restaurant plans to be offering dinner service by January 15. In addition to the dining room and bar, the venue also features a backyard patio, though we're not sure how new ownership intends to use the outdoor space just yet.
