Sami hasn't been there when i've walked by, but the inside demolition looks pretty thorough. i agree that it seems like a full on change in direction, more than a change in cuisine.

 Saw a new awning being put on today. Can't exactly remember but maybe it's El Toum? Sounds Lebanese right? Nice red color.

Wow I'm going to run out there and look! I wonder if it's an actual restaurant or a takeout place--either way it will be great and I do hope it's open more hours than Juju's was towards the end.

I would very much welcome a Lebanese take out.  I don't need to dine in.   I'm convinced it will be a success.

Agreed, I like the idea of a take out place, especially a cuisine we currently don't have ; Lebanese ! and someone running it who is already familiar w/ JH

Something like Souk El Shater in Sunnyside would be great.

 Yes the new banner is 'El Toum'  I read that Toum is a traditional Lebanese garlic sauce.

Pretty much everything there is awesome. Baba ganouj, chicken pies, meat pies, shawarma, kofta in yogurt sauce.

Its the smelliest, most pungent sauce I've ever had. And it so delicious. I always get extra at Souk El Shater. Toum, Zhoug and Lebanese pickles/pickled turnips are why I prefer shawarma over doner or gyro.
