MoCo’s Very Own Z&Z Manoushe Now Available in DC Metro Area Whole Foods

Z&Z, the popular new bakery/restaurant in Rockville (1111 Nelson Street) that got its start in local farmers markets in 2016, has announced that its popular manoushe is now available in local DC, MD and VA Whole Foods. Z&Z recently earned national recognition, being included in a list of 2022’s “Best New Restaurants” by national food website bon apetit.

Co-founder Danny Dubbaneh tells us that this the first time ever that manoushe is available in a major grocer, citing the importance of this kind of cultural representation in the frozen pizza aisle. “Ever since we started at farmers markets way back in 2016 we’ve always had one goal in mind: make everyone know and love manoushe as much as we do. And that’s why we’re excited to be partnering with Whole Foods to make manoushe available for everyone— from the comfort of their own homes.” Dubbaneh said.

Z&Z Manoushe Bakery, owned and operated by the Dubbaneh family, opened in the exact location their grandfather opened a deli in 1982– the store that was home to Slice of Rockville for the last 11 years (1111 Nelson Street). Since September 2021, the restaurant has specialized in manoushe, a flatbread consisting of a simple yeasted dough which can have a variety of different toppings. The Dubbaneh family has told us that they look to “share the extreme generosity and hospitality that exists in Arab food culture with the local community.”
