Dany Abi-Najm traveled to the United States with his family in 1976 to escape the civil war in Lebanon. They got their first jobs the day after they arrived. Dany and his brother worked as busboys, and their father took odd jobs in Arlington, VA. In 1979, they purchased a local restaurant and opened the original Lebanese Taverna. The entire family worked hard to make their restaurant a success and personally welcomed the community into their new establishment.

Forty years later, the family now owns five restaurants, four cafes, a market and an airport location with plans to open several more locations.
From the beginning, the Abi-Najm family has been committed to giving back to their community and providing their employees with opportunities to achieve their own American Dream.
