Kurah Plans Middle Eastern Tappas and Shooting for Summer Opening

Brown paper adorns the windows where Kurah is planning on opening (1355 S. Michigan)
It's been awhile since we've checked up on the proposed restaurant in the old Alain's space (1355 S. Michigan).  At the time we thought it was going to be called Kurah and a reputable source confirms and gives us some additional info:
It's going to be a middle eastern tapas restaurant. They're building out a new bar and second level mezzanine and hope to open by early summer.

The name is Kurah (which is a region in the Middle East which is know for its olives and olive oil). High-quality imported olive oil will be a stable for many of the dishes.
We're super excited for this restaurant and are drueling over the thought of "high-quality imported olive oil". 

Hopefully they also have some delicious falafel...all we want in the Sloop is some delicious falafel!

Good luck with the landlord!!! said...

With middle eastern restaurants, there's an easy way to judge quality by starting with the simplest dishes. If they serve quality olives, feta and fresh baked bread... We will be there often!
