Ana Empremashvili

Ana Empremashvili is the owner and general manager of Marani, a Georgian Glatt Kosher restaurant in Rego Park, Queens. Marani is unique in that it has two kitchens: the bakery downstairs serves dairy and the famous Georgian dish, khachapuri. While upstairs, the kitchen prepares meats for Georgian delicacies such as chakapuli or khinkali. Ana was born in Georgia, but emigrated to Queens where she opened Marani in order to provide her neighborhood (and the growing Georgian Jewish population) with a taste of home.
