Follow Jay Hajj on his culinary journey, beginning with his move from Lebanon to escape a civil war in Beirut, all the way through the opening of Mike’s City Diner, a Boston favorite for over 17 years and staple in the South End. Featured on the Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games, Diners Driveins and Dives and Guy’s Big Bite, as well as The Phantom Gourmet, Mike’s City Diner has won nearly every award a Boston diner can win, including South End News’ Best Breakfast and Cheap Eats award, Boston Magazine’s Best Diner Award and Improper Bostonian’s Best Breakfast Award, as well as being Zagat rated.

Known for hearty, home-style meals, Jay shows the Mike’s City Diner take on diner classics, from how to make your own Smoky Homemade Ham and Mike’s City Diner Turkey Meatloaf to Chicken Liver Pate with Pomegranate Bacon Jam, and how they tie in to pivotal moments in his life, from Beirut in Wartime to his move to America.
