Bestia, Bavel and Saffy’s | Client Stories | East West Bank

Skip to main content

When Los Angeles restaurant Bestia opened in 2013, it quickly became one of the most coveted reservations. The husband and wife duo behind the rustic Italian favorite, Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis, followed that success with two more hits, the Middle Eastern inspired Bavel and Saffy’s. East West Bank has worked with the duo at every stage of their growth, helping them share the food they grew up eating, creating a sense of place and belonging within the community, and inspiring their employees to follow their own dreams.
