The former location of Ararat on North Loop has had a major facelift! The one time Ararat belly dancer, Phara has redone this space and added her own touch. The menu is still Middle Eastern, although a bit more pricey, but the atmosphere has improved ten-fold. To be honest w/ you, I have not had the chance to eat here yet…I just realized it was there…but I will. If any of you ass holes have tried it, please comment. I would freak out if I went there and it sucked and no one bothered to tell me about it! I’m kind of scared b/c Ararat was soooooo yummers, but I will certainly give it a fair chance.
Both restaurants share the same menu as Christopher’s, named after Phara’s son who died of Cystic Fibrosis complications, is there for special reservations and over-flow from Phara’s. Elegant and serene…please, give it a try. This place has been updated and revamped. I hope the food tastes as good as the new establishment looks.
