Colbeh nyc

The Persian, Moroccan, Israeli cuisine restaurant in the heart of midtown, shared by Colbeh and Paprika, has been shut down earlier today. YeahThatsKosher is being told that this is due to the drastic drop in midtown visitors over the last two years which has still not recovered since the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

It is unclear at this time if Colbeh will reopen in another location within Manhattan, however Colbeh fans can still find them at their two Long Island locations in Great Neck and Roslyn.
