020612_hummusThe space at 4317 Manchester Ave., in The Grove has been vacant since last fall when Flavors BBQ Sports Bar & Grill shuttered. In a matter of weeks, however, doors should open again. This time plates will be piled with Middle Eastern eats instead of smoky ‘cue.

The restaurant, to be called Leila (LAY’-lah), will offer fare such as falafel, hummus, kibbe, kabobs, and the typical “oush”-es – baba ghanoush and fattoush. According to building owner Amy Gill of Restoration St. Louis, the new tenants signed the lease on the property last week and hope to have the restaurant up-and-running within four weeks.

Ya Hala will serve lunch and dinner daily, and Abuelawi expects to open doors on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Abuelawi also hopes to secure a downtown location on Washington Avenue next month for a second Ya Hala. He declined to provide the exact address. A website and Facebook page for Ya Hala are currently being developed.
