The Sustain Music Project is a classical music ensemble that presents innovative concerts, combining chamber music with experiences ranging from yoga practice to culinary adventures, lighting, storytelling, and other artistic and theatrical experiences. The musicians play not only in traditional concert and recital halls, but also in homeless shelters, retirement communities, parks, and schools, bringing music and arts to audiences with limited access to such offerings.
Damoori Kitchen was started with a simple premise about Lebanese food: that nothing’s better than the food cooked by teta (grandma).
Executive Chef and co-owner Andrea Matni-Ryan was raised in North Seattle to Lebanese parents and grew up in Seattle’s Lebanese community. Her summers were spent visiting family in Lebanon or hosting Lebanese relatives visiting Seattle. Whether at home in Western Washington or back in the “old country”, huge communal meals of home-cooked Lebanese food were a fixture: dishes like saniyet kibbeh, ruz wi djaj, fattoush, and freshly-made hummus or baba.
Named after Andrea’s father’s hometown of Damour, Lebanon, Andrea and co-owner Conor Ryan opened Damoori Kitchen in Magnolia, Seattle, in 2017 with the sole purpose of sharing homestyle Lebanese cuisine. The dishes are created from Andrea’s family’s recipes passed down through generations and crafted with fresh, authentic ingredients. They are driven by that authenticity because, at its heart, Lebanese food is more than a delicious meal, it’s about bringing people together.
