At Bepita, it's all about richly filled pitas

THE ENTOURAGE GROUP is everywhere. Ten years ago, two Israeli business friends opened restaurant MOMO in the Park Hotel. What no one could have guessed then was that the success of MOMO was followed up and Amsterdam anno 2019 counts no less than 18 restaurants by the hand of Yossi Eliyahoo and Liran Wizman. In April, the gentlemen will surprise Amsterdam again with the opening of pita restaurant Bepita in The Food Department.


After MOMO, Amsterdam was introduced in recent years to IZAKAYA, THE BUTCHER, THE DUCHESS, MR PORTER, Toni Loco and SHIRKAN. All successful restaurant formulas. In addition to Amsterdam, Yossi Eliyahoo and his wife Stephanie, who is the CEO of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP, have not been idle abroad either, opening branches of IZAKAYA, THE BUTCHER and MR PORTER in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Barcelona and Ibiza as the crow flies. And soon to be joined by Milan.

With THE BUTCHER and Toni Loco, Yossi and Stephanie have even grander plans. The concepts are so scalable and international that the couple expects THE BUTCHER and Toni Loco to have as many as 20 locations around the world by 2020


Starting in April, Amsterdam will become acquainted with The Food Department. On the 2nd floor of Magna Plaza, a veritable food hall will be set up with 16 food stands and bars. THE ENTOURAGE GROUP will establish its restaurants THE BUTCHER and Toni Loco there together with the new food concept Bepita. At Bepita, everything revolves around the pita. Freshly prepared pitas made daily in the clay oven. The airy pita bread comes to the table richly filled with various ingredients such as lamb kebab, fish or rib eye and various vegetarian combinations from the grill.

The Food Department
Go see it, go taste it. The Food Department opens April 4 in Magna Plaza with 13 other restaurants and bars in addition to THE BUTCHER, Toni Loco and Bepita.
