About Fairouz Cafe & Gallery

- The creative soul and artistic style of IBRAHIM AL NASHASHIBI were formed in the old city of Jerusalem where he was born in 1950. His family roots are deeply embedded in old Jerusalem. Going back hundreds of years, his ancestors have been prominent citizens and have included well-known poets, writers, politicians as well as religious leaders such as a great grandfather "prince Nasser Aldeen Al-Nashashibi."

AL NASHASHIBI earned his Law degree in 1972 in Beirut; he practiced law in the Gulf until 1986, then choosing a second home in San Diego. He established Fairouz restaurant, a family business, which has become one of San Diego’s best cafes for Middle Eastern food. His restaurant has become not only a gallery but also his studio.

The award-winning artist, AL NASHASHIBI, evokes a variety of emotions with abstract images and uses his creative art to convey his thoughts about key concepts in the lives of humans now and in the future. His creative use of acrylics, watercolor, ceramics, and murals expresses the images from within his soul. He uses a kaleidoscope of colors to reflect his view of people and life throughout time, and depictions of life in Jerusalem portrayed as the City of Love and as the Mother of Humanity.

Art critics and art lovers respond to his vibrant canvases and his capability to paint with the spontaneity of a child. At the other extreme one finds the philosopher in full motion.

AL NASHASHIBI says, “ all of us come into the world with the same human frailties but we project a different outer image in every day life.” Which is also depicted in his art form.

U.S.I.U. designated him “The Artist With A World Vision”. S.W. Cable, ABC and Al Jazeera created documentaries featuring the life and the art of AL NASHASHIBI.

His worldwide exhibits include the U.N. Building, the I.M.F. in Washington D.C., Japan,

Canada, Moscow, Mexico, Panama, Dubai, Cairo, Amman, Jerusalem, and Gaza.

Reviews and Ratings


I've been coming here for over a decade, and they have the a outstanding selection of greek and lebanese food. The buffet has a amazing selection for a low cost price, with a excellent vegan selection as well as traditional mainstays such as gyros, chicken, and lamb (which is delicious). The place itself has a very relaxed, contemplative atmosphere, as the owner is a artist whose paintings provide excellent mood and decor. The owners are very friendly, warm, and approachable themselves, so don't be afraid to talk to them. PS - Try the rosewater lemonade, it's the best I've found ANYWHERE.
