New restaurant space taking shape next to Dorignac's (eastern/New Orleans side), looks Middle Eastern based on the Moorish facade. Sign says Cyrus Restaurant. Doesn't appear open yet. Anyone know anything about it yet?

Spoke with the owner's wife and she says it may be a couple of months to open due to usual permitting delays

Did she say what kind of food it will be? Is it the old Foodies to Go building?

It's a new building on the site of the old Fun Arcade. Supposed to be Persian/Iranian.

I'd love to see someone do something with Foodies. Great building and prime location.

Opening a new business around here is not easy...that location is likey high rent.
Expenses are high and people here are peculiar about where they shop/dine.

We opened a new business here in Metairie 4 years ago and many friends/family have never been in to have a look...
...it's not easy.

But my thanks to Rae, Holly, Laura, Beth, Henry and Bam-Bam for your support.

Jerry,
You are lucky to be located on the end by Severn rather being buried somewhere in the middle. However, the end spot doesn't seem to help Roo's, Maybe there are other issues.

BTW, would you rank the sandwiches places along and around the Severn stretch.
