Welcome to Bitar's

Our Story

Bitar’s is not just an award-winning specialty Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food store and restaurant enterprise – it’s a family.

When the Bitar’s found that their Middle Eastern neighborhood had no ethnic food market, Elias and Mariette Bitar opened a small shop and Pita bakery on the corner of 10th and Federal Streets to cater to the community.
Now, almost 50 years later, that corner store has become a major supplier to the best chefs in Philadelphia. We continue to serve both Philadelphians from the Middle East and Philadelphians interested in the wonderful flavors that originated in the Middle East. Browse our menu and read about us in the news.

We hope to serve you very soon!
