WICHITA — At long last, Syed Jillani is about ready to open a restaurant in the former Red Mesa Grill space at 756 N. Tyler Road.
Two restaurants, in fact.
The first is Kababs, which will serve Indian and Pakistani cuisine.
There will be curry dishes, seafood and vegetarian entrees and, naturally, kababs.
The building is 6,000 square feet, and Kababs will go in only part of it.
Jillani still plans to open Grilled Cheez, a restaurant he first planned at the space a couple of years back.
The economy put those plans on hold, and Jillani instead operated his Wichita Private Chef’s Catering there while waiting for the economy to rebound.
Grilled Cheez likely will open at least two or three months down the road.
It will offer more inexpensively priced American food, though Jillani says Kababs also will be economical and casual.
He plans to still operate his catering company from there.
As soon as a Kababs opening date is set, we’ll let you know.
